If my Gran used web standards, I’d want to know about it. Not only
that, but I’d want to tell everyone I know that I know about it. I mean,
what could be more fantastic?

Well, she’s dead, but that doesn’t change the fact that making good
use of web standards is something to be celebrated and shared with the
world. For this reason (and that of a little market research), the Web
Standards Project is asking you – do you use web standards? And who the
heck are you anyway?

In the biggest survey since WaSP’s inception, we are asking web
designers and developers to tell us who they are, what they do and how
they are using web standards. Our goal is to gather enough data to focus
the Project on the key areas affecting web professionals in their
everyday work. We may be grassroots, but this is one big field,

The survey can be found at from now until
July 8th, and we invite everyone who’s involved in web production in any
capacity to come along and give us their take on web standards. (For the
record, we think they’re great).
