Looks excellent to me. I know I can learn more, and I certainly know many resistive html and css coders who I plan to introduce to this resource. It sure beats trying to decipher some of the more academic W3C pages! The articles begin here [dev.opera.com].
Opera's Bruce Lawson comments:
At Opera, we've heard lots of anecdotes about the poor quality of education out there, with web design being stuck in the late 90s (mal-)practice. The fact that graduates are hitting the job market without any idea of web standards, accessibility or user-centric design is bad for our industry, bad for all industry because every organisation needs a webs site, and it's bad for the Web itself.
You should use W3C standards - Eric Law (Microsoft IE Team)
It is glad to see they are now behind W3C standards... We just have to wait for them to actually implement them rather than just talk about them.
They need a good editor to cut out the cruft from this stuff. Way, way too long-winded.
Gotta cut down on the word count, fellas, you can't bore people into using standards-based techniques.
They're asking for feedback. This is mine.
Excellent initiative but for heaven's sake, Chris Mills, if this is for mass consumption, keep it: pithy, abrupt, to the point.
Let an editor loose on your copy with a chainsaw. You'll end up with something you can be proud of and everyone can benefit from.
I was only able to navigate series using back button :(.. no next links?
ooops sorry they're now at the top, still not very accessible or obvious after you've read the article though

This is going to save me a lot of client education time and stop some "debates" before they get started.
After a quick skim, I was bored and a tad embarrassed to think that my repeated recommendations of the browser will/might be associated with something so dry
Unless (until?) it's very heavily edited, I very much doubt I'll be using it to back up the 'standards' approach
Making Opera WSC work for you
For Web developers

They missed one:
Shocking, considering how much good stuff there is out there in print and on the net that could be re-worked. No need to re-invent the wheel.
They'd be better off making a deal with W3schools or somesuch for a special edition of their content.
It's been done, and done better.
