I think this is a *horrible* idea. I’m a huge advocate of web standards, but I strongly believe this campaign is misguided.

The only people who will “get” what’s going on are standards advocates…it’ll be preaching to the choir.

Everyone else will simply see what they believe is a “broken” site, or simply an ugly/plain one. If they’re a first-time visitor, they may never return.

This is NOT the best way to get the word out about standards…

I’m with Tony, I wouldn’t want any of my sites to appear for even a day without the visual appeal that css adds for them. This isn’t because I don’t support standards, I certainly support them and try to make sure I always meet their requirements. I suspect 99% of the browsing community though, won’t be interested in the least about why a site is ugly, they’ll just click right on by.
