Smooches to the true believers who flooded The WaSP’s in-box this a.m. In the interest of efficiency: the old Browser Upgrade campaign has been redirected to its new home here, an earlier problem with the RSS feed has been fixed, and we’re cognizant of a horizontal scrollbar in IE5.x/Mac that seems to be caused by a browser bug (fancy that!) and thus probably cannot be fixed—at least, not by us.

It’s good to be back. Pertinent reads with that fresh-baked cookie smell: the new mission statement, a late springtime opinion, and a successful, behind-the-scenes campaign that took place while our site was offline. We also encourage designers and developers at all levels to page through our budding LEARN section.

This little site complies with CSS and XHTML 1.0 Strict and is designed to work in any browser (imagine that). Alas, it does not render in recent beta versions of OmniWeb, whose support for even basic web standards is woefully incorrect and incomplete. If you’re new to The WaSP and are unsure about what we mean by standards, this may help.

Our gratitude list is a yard long, but for now let us thank Dean for the redesign, Peter for the smart new logo, Todd and Eric for the CSS layout that stays crisp in milk, David, B.K. and Scott Andrew for the last-minute heavy lifting, Rachel and Drew for helping Macromedia get its standards groove on, Shirley and Molly for spearheading the emergent LEARN section, and Steve for his chops. You’ll find these WaSPs and more in the Bios department. Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.
