Don’t mess with Texas

The state of Texas has passed a law mandating the use of web standard compliant code in all state web sites. With accessibility now mandated by federal law through Section 508, it’s time that standards compliance was made a priority among developers. Also, the Web Standards Group is pressuring web toolmakers such as Adobe and Macromedia to write tools that support web standards and generate good code. Looks like people are starting to make steps in the right direction as far as web standards go.
