Back in the olden days of the Web (circa 2001), websites were novelties. You'd ask a resident hobbyist to build a site and it would magically appear out of nothing (and cost nothing). No standards, no accessibility concerns or even assessment tools: "Look! We've got a website. We're modern and hip!"
Fast-forward to today and ask any student where they turn first to find information and they won't hesitate to say "the Web." After all, where else would they think to find information?
For better or for worse, your Web presence is quite possibly the most prominent piece of your organization. It's the 21st-century first impression. People will visit your site and form a snapshot opinion of your work that will either help or hinder your goals. Here's what you need to know to make sure that first impression is a good one.
Like building codes, Web standards are a set of rules and guidelines for building structurally sound web sites. The official standard bearers are found at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). They craft standards to help minimize browser display errors and maximize the accessibility to the visually- and mobility-impaired community.
