Our sites conform to standards. At the bottom of every site we build, you will see two icons. We consider these icons, "badges of honor". These W3C icons can only be displayed if you have passed the validation tests with zero (0) errors & zero (0) warnings.
The first icon shows that the page is valid XHTML.
The second icon shows that the page's cascading style sheets (CSS) are valid CSS.
All pages on every website we build, has these icons proudly displayed. For more information on standards and the tools that can be used to validate, see the sidebar on the right.
