My Journey to Web Standards and Accessibility

Posted in Accessibility, Web Standards

I’ve recently started the journey of converting this site to be more Web standards compliant and accessible. I decided to start small and just see how it goes. I’ve completed the following steps so far: converted all HTML code to more semantic and structural XHTML, switched to a CSS layout, and added accessibility enhancements throughout. I’ve also removed all of the decorative graphics from the foreground—they don’t show up when CSS is disabled or when the page is printed.It’s truly amazing how much cleaner this code is becoming. Let me know what you think if you get a few minutes.
