In recent years, the term has been more frequently associated with the trend of endorsing a set of standardised best practices for building web sites. This also includes a philosophy of web design and development that includes those methods. Lexiconnect adhere to W3C standards for work undertaken in current projects.
Many interdependent standards and specifications, some of which govern aspects of the Internet, not just the World Wide Web, directly or indirectly affect the development and administration of web sites and web services. Considerations include the interoperability, accessibility and usability of web pages and websites. Website standards in the broader sense consist of the following recommendations published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C):
HyperText Markup Language - HTML5 Valid. Most pages on the World Wide Web are written in computer languages (such as HTML) that allow Web authors to structure text, add multimedia content, and specify what appearance, or style, the result should have.
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a simple mechanism for adding style (for example fonts, colours, spacing and size) to Web documents. The W3C CSS Validation Service was created by W3C to help Web designers and Web developers check Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
Conformance Level "A": all Priority 1 checkpoints are satisfied. Priority 1 - A Web content developer must satisfy this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or more groups will find it impossible to access information in the document. Satisfying this checkpoint is a basic requirement for some groups to be able to use Web documents.
Conformance Level "Double-A": all Priority 1 and 2 checkpoints are satisfied. Priority 2 - A Web content developer should satisfy this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or more groups will find it difficult to access information in the document. Satisfying this checkpoint will remove significant barriers to accessing Web documents.
Conformance Level "Triple-A": all Priority 1, 2, and 3 checkpoints are satisfied. Priority 3 - A Web content developer may address this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or more groups will find it somewhat difficult to access information in the document. Satisfying this checkpoint will improve access to Web documents.
