So, after the gloom’n'doom of the previous post, what is the future of web standards, anyway? Exactly what the WaSP has always said it is: to help web developers do more with less, and pass those savings on to our customers.
Want proof? D. Keith Robinson has it. Keith breaks down the cost and development time for two roughly comparable projects, one developed using old-school tag soup and the other using standards. The results are striking. As a bonus, Keith also throws in an analysis of another, larger project using web standards.
That, as far as I’m concerned, is the only answer necessary: web standards save you—and your clients—time and money today. ‘Nuff said.
