Standards Based Web Design

A standards based web design process is one which aims to present your website in the most effective and efficient way possible: Properly displaying your content across multiple devices, platforms, and browsers- Including users with disabilities. The code aims to overcome all these technological disparities to present the site consistently.

These standards are administered by the World Wide Web Consortium, or W3C, an international organization founded by the guy who basically invented the World Wide Web in 1989, Tim Berners-Lee.

Say No to the Flash

In short, the W3C aims to make sure that the Internet is made up of websites that promote openness, interoperability, and vendor neutrality. For instance, we want to ensure that a website can be accessed by everyone without the use of proprietary software, such as Flash or ActiveX.

A standards based website that adheres to the W3C’s specifications is built using best practices that emphasizes semantically correct and valid code, user-centric page structures, and universal accessibility.
