LOAF Stylesheet


Now that I have been working with LOAF for several days, I have the feeling that the technology is not completely finished yet. I have studied many LOAF implementations, but have the feeling that most implementations are just too difficult to implement.

A lot of implementations are written in obscure programming languages, and need a powerful server to run on. But this way the LOAF technology is kept away from the big audience, who know nothing about programming. In my opinion, LOAF should be more easy to use, Joe Sixpack should be able to use it on his blog. And that preferably by only changing a single setting in his weblogging software.

So, I decided to create a LOAF implementation in CSS. Notice that this stylesheet is XHTML1.1 ready, since it also styles the  element. You only need to copy the file to your server and your site is completely LOAF-compliant.

To use the LOAF CSS implementation on your site, follow the steps below:

  • Download the LOAF CSS file;
  • Replace the stylesheet for your site with the contents of the file you just downloaded (MT users: read the instructions on the Movable Type site).
  • That's all!
