Higher Education Web Professionals of New York
23–24 June 2003, Rochester Institute of Technology
- Designing with Web Standards
- In the web’s first decade, we learned to solve today’s problems at tomorrow’s expense. As each new incompatible browser was released, we retooled our sites at ever higher costs in a futile effort to deliver our content while avoiding obsolescence. But that build-now, pay-later approach is no longer productive or even necessary. Designing with web standards simplifies production and greatly lowers its cost, while delivering sites that are accessible to more people and more types of Internet devices. Jeffrey Zeldman, web designer, author, and co-founder of The Web Standards Project, will explore the history of browser-driven design and explain how standards can solve today’s problems without generating worse dilemmas downstream.
