Working together for standards The Web Standards Project

Oh the irony — that a standards body should ignore standards in creating their new Web site!

As a member of the IEEE, I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw that the new IEEE Web site redesign was announced in an e-mail newsletter… along with another entry titled “Let’s Not Overlook Standards”. Since their previous site didn’t make use of Web standards, I had hopes that this one would… but on viewing source of the new site, those hopes were quickly dashed.

What does this say to users and to Web professionals when a technical standards body completely ignores Web standards? The term “unprofessional” doesn’t even seem to go far enough.

As a Web professional and as a member of the IEEE, I’m ashamed and I’m insulted. You should be too. Contact the IEEE and let them know how you feel.
