And all that Malarkey

For over ten years our blog’s been a popular destination for thousands of website designers and developers from all around the world.

An ecommerce strategic partnership

Finally designers and developers have what they want: a standards-based, highly accessible and professional ecommerce solution that has fewer limitations than anything we have seen so far.

Accessibility, the gloves come off

People still delivering nested table layout, spacer gifs or ignoring accessibility can no longer call themselves web professionals.

Not making friends or influencing people

I’ll try to explain my personal opinion as to why I believe that there should not be laws governing web accessibility and that such laws hinder the cause of wider web accessibility rather than help it.

On a shoe-string

Here are a few tools which form part of the base-level accessibility testing routine at Stuff and Nonsense.

What purpose do they serve the public who have little knowledge or interest in accessibility or code validity? And how can we better use these badges to help promote awareness of standards and accessibility?
