But I think that it will be a good thing, as it will 'sanitize' the web design industry.
Iím new here. I came here to get some tips on how to improve the web site for the small company I own and operate (electronic OEM manufacturing).
Iím one of the guys that use ĎFront Pageí for layout and clean up by hacking my way through html, java, etc.
The above quote seems to imply that the web should be the private domain of the professional web designer and this new ruling will promote the competent while at the same time remove the riff-raff.
jrookie, that's why I used 'the web design industry'. I meant the web design companies that cut corners by delivering non-valid websites or do not mention the benefits - and almost legal requirements - of having an accessible website. I did not imply that it will sanitize the web to have mom and pop business (or owner managed website) sued by people.
The fact that you are here on WebmasterWorld means that you are willing to learn and listen to what more experienced people have to say (I do not mean that in a derogatory way). I would assume that you came here to learn about how to make your website generate more business for your company? SEO is one way. Making your site valid and accessible is another.
