HTML sucks

Lately I've been spotting a lot of HTML tricks (thanks, Joe Grossberg), with people creating all sorts of simple graphics (like hearts and brick houses) out of insanely complicated HTML and CSS. While my first reaction to these graphics is "Wow, neat!", my next reaction is "Ewwww."

Look at the sorry state that HTML developers have been reduced to in this world! This degree of hack is just plain disgusting, and it's a definite sign that HTML has definitely jumped the shark long ago. Of course, we have Microsoft to blame for neglecting IE while they go off and build XAML. It's a damn shame we'll be stuck with these nasty hacks until 2006, when the next significant advance of IE hits the streets.
