Everything Standards

I’ve mentioned before that Jenny and I are big fans of Tori Amos. Her music takes up nearly 1.5GB of space in my collection.

Yesterday, I was thrilled to find out about her new “official” website: everythingtori.com. It is a work of design/development art. It validates as XHTML, has a great design, clear navigation and some great content. Turn Table is the design firm responsible for the masterpiece. Kudos to them for bringing standards and good taste to an area of webdesign that too often is riddled with inaccessible flash sites — even Tori’s other “official” site.

They also use the pMachine Expression Engine presumably for the CMS/weblog-like functions of the site. This tool looks very impressive.

Wow, Expression Engine does look cool. I played around with it a bit, and I like the Templates area and also the "expiration" date ability to have a post disappear automatically. Very cool - it seems like it would apply to both a personal site(s) and also to a business blog or an entire web site for CMS purposes.

Yeah, I'm definitely impressed by the admin tools they've built. $149.99 is more than I would want to spend on a personal project, but $199.99 is relatively cheap for a professional one.

Did you see the DHTML date/time control? Very slick! Plus, I like how the admin tool is designed for a 1024+ screen. If your users have the screen res you might as well utilize it, especially on an admin tool.
