Part: I Houston, We Have a Problem > The Trouble with Standards

Chapter Three. The Trouble with Standards

Web standards hold the key to accessible, cost-effective web design and development, but you wouldn't know it from surveying significant commercial and creative sites of the past few years. In this chapter, we'll explore some of the reasons why web standards have not yet been incorporated into the normative practice of all design shops and in-house web divisions and are not yet obligatory components of every site plan or request for proposal.

If you would prefer to read web standards success stories, turn to Chapter 4, “XML Conquers the World (And Other Web Standards Success Stories.” If you're sold on standards and are ready to roll up your sleeves, skip ahead to Chapter 5, “Modern Markup.” But if you need help selling standards to your colleagues—or if you simply want to understand how an industry can attain standards without using them—this chapter is for you.
