  • why?

  • To make internet a better place, for both developers and visitors, it is important that both browsers and web developers follow the web standards.

  • Developers

    • When developers follow the Web standards, the development is simplified, since it is easier for a developer to understand another’s coding.

  • Browser Display

    • Will ensure that all browsers will display your web site properly, without time-consuming rewrites.

  • Search Engines

    • Easier for search engines to access and index, easier to convert to other formats, and easier to access with program code (Javascript)

  • Accessibility

    • Allow people with disabilities to access web content using assistive-technologies.
