Your session in a few words: 
All youre (x)html(5) are belong to us! - The Mothership attacks the markup of Drupal
September 3, 2009 - 13:40 - 14:30
User experience and design
Session Type: 
Level of expertise: 

Drupal comes with a lot(!) of predefined markup & css.
Modules are adding styles and markup to the themes and so themers have limited control over whats going on inside the theme - that works well for some themers - others not so much.. or to put in other words:

"WTF does all this bib markup do in my bib site - aaargh for bib sake, Gimme lean mean mother bib 'ing markup"

The Mothership is a theme thats build in the opposite way normal drupal practice: clean out "useless" markup & remove classes that clutters op what should be beautiful source.

...or anyone who dont have a sense of humor
