celebrates a year with web standards

Joe D’Andrea reflects back on the work he and his team did to bring AT&T’s corporate site into web standards in AT&T: One Full Year With Web Standards.

The article is a very good read, especially for those who claim that web standards can’t be used on major corporate websites. Joe’s story shows that not only is it possible - it can also be very beneficial.

  1. Wow, a major site that actually validates I’m very impressed ATT. Kudos, keep up the good work.

  2. Thanks for bringing this to our attention - Joe’s article is certainly an interesting read. And hey…they even used that ghastly ‘too-tricky for some people’ XHTML as well - bargain! :)

    Joe and his associates have proven that web-standards can be brought to a major site like AT&T…(so why can’t other companies do the same?)

  3. I can’t wait for the day that Web Standards is no longer a special term we use to clarify that we’re doing things right and we start using a term like Web Garbage in order to describe tag-soup and table layouts.
