Long-time readers of this blog, and anyone who has ever spoken with me about web design over the last couple of years will know that I love WordPress, the Content Management System (CMS) that powers this blog. I’ve used it to power this site, the Scottish Episcopal Church website, the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain website, the exNYCgb website, and the soon-to-be-launched Sing Now! 2006 website.

You’ll also know (or suspect) that I’m a fan of Web Standards, and that Jeffrey Zeldman‘s book Designing with Web Standards (which is about to be published in a second edition) is one of the best, evangelical books about the use of Web Standards that I’ve ever read. (It’s a good, fun read too.)

Well, Mr Zeldman has just moved his site over to WordPress. What a great endorsement for a first-class, highly useable, and standards-compliant CMS.

UPDATE: WordPress 2.0.2 is out now, providing an important security update.
