more standards compliance

After dragging my feet for a long time, I just made another site I manage standards compliant. Since I’m not going to be maintaining the site much longer, I didn’t really want to invest too much time in my endeavour, so I just made it validate to HTML 4.01 Transitional, and made sure that the CSS validated as well. This now means I no longer manage any sites that are not standards compliant, which is nice :).

I shall have to impress upon the next webmaster how important it is to adhere to web standards. Standards compliance is a Good Thing™, and here’s why. Everyone should be writing pages to be standards compliant. If you’re not, you should :). If you write pages specifically for Internet Explorer, you shouldn’t call yourself a web developer.
