UsableNet announced yesterday it has integrated its LIFT product into Microsoft FrontPage, the vastly popular (though not particularly standards-friendly) web authoring tool.
UsableNet’s LIFT, previously incorporated in Macromedia Dreamweaver MX, encourages accessible authoring techniques and includes built-in accessibility validators and reference guides.
LIFT won’t stop FrontPage from generating proprietary non-standard markup, but it should help FrontPage users identify many accessibility violations and add accessibility features to images, tables, and so on.
Who knows? Maybe some day FrontPage will integrate Dave Ragget’s TIDY as well, enabling users to author valid (X)HTML.
