Web standards save time, decrease costs, increase flexibility - don't ignore them.
Compliance with web standardsThe interoperable technologies (specifications, guidelines, software, and tools) to lead the Web to its full potential - W3C saves resources, eases maintenance, enables reuse, broadens your audience and even helps search engines index your site better.
The list of benefits is long and we can go on here, but there are so many wonderfully informative resources on web standards already - let's show you how liveSTORYBOARD CMS is standards-based and fully standards compliant instead.
Standards compliance should be a requirement for any CMS
liveSTORYBOARD CMS was one of the first to introduce WYSIWYG browser-based XML editing as well as valid and accessible output. Needless to say, we take the subject seriously. liveSTORYBOARD CMS generates valid and accessible code and supports XML, XHTML, HTML, XSLT, CSS.
So much talk has been generated around standards over the last couple of years - as if standards are not considered a requirement. Even if standards compliance is not a primary requirement, it should be treated as a quality mark by web professionals and demanded by clients.
With so many benefits, why so many sites or content management systems do not follow web standards and recommendations is a mystery. Because compliance takes a little extra effort? Perhaps, but we believe in taking whatever extra steps necessary to produce the best results, don't you?
Standards compliance is an especially important requirement when choosing a content management system - if the CMS does not support standards, your own hard work in the right direction can easily be crippled by the "tag soupMarkup documents containing mistakes, using structurally unnecessary or inappropriate elements for layout" most CMSs generate.
