Sometimes I come across a website that’s so beautifully designed and elegantly executed that I don’t know whether to be inspired or depressed by it.
The website of Lambertin and Grotegerd is one such site. It’s has a wonderful visual design with a very clever stylesheet holding everything together.
There’s also a great attention to detail. If you view source, you’ll see that the document’s <head> is as long as its <body>. Partly, that’s because of the lean, mean XHTML in the <body> but the <head> is a great example of how to implement Dublin Core and other <meta> tags.
I sent them a short note to tell them how much I like the site. I hope I didn’t embarrass myself with my rusty German.
