… and the mediocre content they provide? I’m especially tired of the high ranking they (still) get in google. I go to hit google with “PlaceHolder asp.net”, and w3schools is the second hit. If you go read their page it has barely 3 lines regarding this control (highlighted with red outline), the remaining details are simply aggregate data, or advertising (outlined with green, doesn’t include all the further ads you’d see if you had scrolled down).
w3schools “3 lines of documentation” regarding the ASP.NET PlaceHolder class.
I mean, this is a total joke. When did w3schools start out? 2000? They became popular with their concise CSS properties listings back in the day. But seriously, it’s like this site is frozen in time. Their CSS reference point is 2.0 from 1998 (not that a mere properties reference would list much different from 2.0 and 2.1, but there are some minor additions.) I would prefer they would work on updating their CSS reference instead of wasting time on ASP.NET.
