Damn HTML6 specs..

Quote

sponsored tags are being introduced in to the next version of the HTML6 specification.

A company or individual may purchase a sponsored tag up until the close of the HTML6 spec process. The deadline for submissions is April 2nd, 2013. There are a couple of different options for sponsorship, however, the common theme is that a company or individual may pay to have their brand become a tag or attribute. In order to maintain openness and allow everyone to get involved, different sponsorship tiers are available.


Tier 1: Tin
The tin tier is the most frugal option for brands wishing to get their information in to the HTML6 specification. The tin tier allows you to purchase an attribute on an existing tag.

Tier 2: Aluminum
This gets you a full tag written in to the specification.

Tier 3: Diamond
The diamond tier displays a full, non-skippable splash screen before each page load.


CSS overrides are not permitted, and it is always floated right

Here's one that's not an April Fools joke. Might as well be considering CSS3 is not even widely adapted yet.

Although this isn't about some other company trying to pull an April fool's joke; I was planning on getting the password to my step mother's Macbook Air, and randomly sshing into it and saying random things at random times.

Sadly, she's as addicted as I am, so I couldn't get the free time to do it. :/
