What Is Forward Compatibility?

What do we mean by forward compatibility? We mean that, designed and built the right way, any document that is published on the web can work across multiple browsers, platforms, and Internet devices—and will continue to work as new browsers and devices are invented. Open standards make this possible.

As an added attraction, designing and building with standards lowers production and maintenance costs while making sites more accessible to those who have special needs. (Translation: more customers for less cost, improved public relations, decreased likelihood of accessibility-related litigation.)
