Web Development References

Many of us now work on the Web in one capacity or another. This section is devoted to development with web-related technologies, including XML. In addition to the more technical topics you would expect on a programmer's site, I've also included links and information on website design.

Another reason for these links is a vote for standards in Web development. I've seen several articles recently (August 2002), where reviewers or journalists have made comments to the effect that there's no sense in matching standards, just follow Internet Explorer. I disagree with this approach, in general, and this case in particular. Microsoft has had a habit of changing their standards with each new release. (How many different DOC file formats are there?) This basically means that all others must either stay a version behind Microsoft or just give up and use only their products.

Standards are a way to allow other companies to compete and customers to have a choice. They also give customers a level of confidence in a product. You have a way to tell whether a behavior is a bug or an intended feature.

For this reason, here are links which point to standards-based web development references, as well as links about design.
