Working together for standards The Web Standards Project


While it’s become much more common than, say, a couple years ago, it still deserves mention whenever a high-profile website relaunches with exemplary web development practices. Such is the case with the Yahoo! UK & Ireland TV Listings site, which this past week relaunched with some of the leanest and cleanest HTML and CSS.

The site is rich with semantics, Microformats and advanced CSS techniques to improve the performance of page loads. Even the URLs of the actual TV listings themselves show off the attention to detail that went into this relaunch.

We congratulate the team at Yahoo! for their excellent work.

(Clarification: the accessibility concerns previously mentioned in this post don’t apply to the Listings site itself, which is in fact very accessible)
