The benefits of Web Standards to your visitors, your clients and you

Posted on 10 March 2004 by Demian Turner

Via Web Standards Project BUZZ, here’s a great list of reasons to make the effort to have your projects adopt web standards.  I started a new project recently and was asked, “Why use divs/css instead of tables?” so here is a proper explanation for those still wondering:

  1. The Web Standards
  2. What are Web Standards about?
  3. A mindset change
  4. Semantically correct markup
  5. What is valid code?
  6. What is accessible code?
  7. Why use CSS to separate content from presentation?
  8. A CSS based site in action
  9. How do your VISITORS benefit from Web Standards?
  10. How do your CLIENTS benefit from Web Standards?
  11. How do YOU benefit from Web Standards?
  12. What are the downsides
  13. How do you achieve Web Standards?
  14. Conclusion
  15. Web Standards resources

(Please don’t take this site as an example, as soon as I can get a few more modules finished I will be moving over to the Seagull framework).
