Not sure if my immature skills would garner me a title as either a 
designer or a coder, but as a minor webdev I've been working in web 
standards for the past 9 months or so.  Also initially inspired by 
Zeldman, as well as Eric Meyer, Dan Cederholm and Joe Clark 
(accessibility standards).

I've gone all the way to striving for pure CSS-P and semantic XHTML. 
Floats are comfortable friends, the box model tattooed on my eyelids, 
Eric Meyer's vaguely creepy visage always close at hand (EM on CSS, More 
EM on CSS).  Accessibility issues are also at the forefront of my work 
these days.
