To say, "...you must follow W3Schools" makes me wonder if that person thinks W3Schools is affiliated with the W3C. To be clear, there is no association of any kind between the two.
Let's not forget some of us are not native English speakers, don't jump to conclusions please.
Personally: I find the w3c standards quite easy to read, and the main advantage is that you do not suffer from interpretations, omissions etc. Now I understand that's not the easy start. But the real question is should the start be easy ?
My position is that it should not be easy, as the easier it is made, the less people care to do it right, to adhere to standards etc. and the more crap is put out there.
If you want it easy: use a tool and hope it's a good one that adheres to the standards.
If you care about quality: use the standards properly and dump the tools, learn the details and put some effort in it learning how it really works.
