Web Standards

Friday, October 31st, 2008

What are web standards and what do they stand for.

As you know, there are different computers, different browsers, different operating systems and different browser versions. But what makes a website function correctly on every one of these different computers? That’s where the web standards come.
The software developers, consider these standarts, when developing a web browsing applications.

The problem is that, there are a lot of websites, created by people, who don’t know what a “web standard” is. I bet that, in your experience you have at least 10 times found a website, which doesn’t work. These websites usually are created with amateur “easy to use” programs and they will not look and function properly on every computer, which makes them useless.

The website you are viewing is valid, with no errors and it will look the same on every computer.
