W3C web code standards compliance
What are the W3C standards?
They are a comprehensive set of well-defined web coding standards managed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). They exist to ensure that the implementation of web-based technologies is well-structured and follows a set of well-defined rules to enable all web pages to display and function correctly in all types of web browser applications, on all types of equipment.
Why W3C standards compliance matters
There are many advantages: -
- Web pages that have standards-compliant code should display without problems in ALL web browsers on ALL types of equipment
- As more devices become capable of displaying displaying web pages, the web page browsers within the devices are all converging their standard behaviour to conform with the W3C standards
- Web pages that are fully validated are often more accessible to people with disabilities
- Code validation encourages and complements well-structured code
- Well-structured code separates the CONTENT of the web pages from the PRESENTATION of the content
- The web pages are much easier to manage and much easier to change
- The style of the entire web site can be changed more easily without affecting the actual content
As a result the cost of ownership and maintenance of a web site which contains pages that are fully validated and well-structured is significantly less, and the web site is guaranteed to reach the maximum audience (i.e. all types of media, PC platforms and web browsers) without problems.
