Making Scsi's Web Site Best Practice #10 both Testable and Verifiable using Publicly-Accessible Tools

For specific details about Scsi's stance on Web page validation, take a look at Scsi's WebKISS™ Guide #1: Why Validate a Web Site's Pages?

As a general rule, you'll likely to be able to find individuals who espouse adherence to Web standards, those who feel that such Web standards do or will only complicate things and get in the way of productive and creative Web page design and implementation, and perhaps even a third group who are waiting for and wanting convincing proof that there really is a practical way to basically "have your cake and eat it too."

To show you that this worthy goal can actually be accomplished on a realistic scale, Scsi offers a "Keep It Simple, Sonoff!" approach for everyone to use. How? Claims of 100% conformance to W3C Usability and Accessibility standards are both immediately testable and verifiable -- by Y-O-U -- in either of two ways: 1) You can always make use of the set of three "Test-this-Web-page" hyperlinks located near the bottom of each and every page on the Scsi P&KT Web site, and 2) you can make use of the set of three "Test Any Web Site's Pages" hyperlinks provided on this Web page and on Scsi's Tips and Notes Web page as well.

Providing a Learning-by-doing Approach to Web Validation and Web Accessibility Issues

So, what's the basic point for providing these hyperlinks? First of all, doing so makes it a straightforward task for you to prove for yourself that Scsi's Web Site Best Practice #10 is successfully met. Secondly, you learn that even such highly technical Internet-related Web validation standards can be "put to the test" by any visitor to this site. Lastly, your performing each of these learning-by-doing validation tests should convince you of this fact: The built-on-adherence-to-Web-standards foundation of the Scsi P&KT Web site is currently "rock solid" -- all by design.

Moreover, Scsi plans to keep it that way -- always focusing on 100% accessibility -- all for your benefit and seamlessly presented enjoyment amongst the obviously chaotic state of Web site designs that you will encounter elsewhere. So, remember these two basic facts as you proceed with your learning-by-doing validation-to-Web-standards testing:

  • FACT #1: You are presented with the power to select and to immediately test-and-verify each and every one of these conformances to W3C standards for yourself.
  • FACT #2: No specialized training or knowledge is ever required on your part to make effective use of these publicly accessible validation tools.
