Website Validation

Did you know?

You can check the compatibility and accessibility of almost any website. This is especially useful when you're investigating your next web design firm. Why you should validate your website.

One of the great things about the web is you can actually test the quality and compliance of any website. This, by no means, should be your only investigation into a firm's abilities. But if the firm's website fails this simple test, what are the odds their work for you will be any better?

We always find it amazing when a design firm boasts a huge list of clients and none of their websites are written in valid XHTML or CSS.

Accessibility

Accessibility is for everyone.

Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the Web. More specifically, Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the Web, and that they can contribute to the Web.

Web accessibility also benefits people without disabilities. For example, a key principle of Web accessibility is designing website and software that are flexible to meet different user needs, preferences, and situations. This flexibility also benefits people without disabilities in certain situations, such as people using a slow Internet connection, people with "temporary disabilities" such as a broken arm, and people with changing abilities due to aging.
