Creating an Equal Opportunity for All
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has created the Open Web Platform that provides the technical specifications and guidelines for web design and applications to build and render web pages and applications.
Whew - that's a mouthful. The thing to remember is that the web has its own language and the "rule book" or "principals of design" for the web are provided by W3C. The W3C provides these guidelines and tools free to all with the hope of enabling everyone in the world to benefit from the web. This mission is supported worldwide by member companies like Apple, Microsoft, Adobe, Cisco, Intel, Samsung... (if you're curious, visit W3c to check out its membership roll).
W3C is responsible for creating the standards for HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) that provide the basic building blocks for all web languages, pages and applications. HTML provides structure and CSS provides style. W3C provides an outstanding free tool with easy to understand examples of HTML5 and CSS working together as well as tools to learn the most widely used web languages.
W3C is a global community that develops open standards for the web. HTML and CSS are two of their most important standards, and they are responsible for how websites look and function. In this blog post, we will discuss how HTML and CSS work together to create an equal opportunity for all.
HTML is the standard markup language for creating web pages. HTML elements are the building blocks of HTML pages. They are used to structure content and to add meaning and semantics to it. CSS is the style sheet language used for describing the presentation of HTML documents. CSS makes websites look beautiful and easy to use.
The W3C is responsible for making sure that HTML and CSS work together to create an equal opportunity for all. Their standards are important because they ensure that website developers can create accessible websites that everyone can use, regardless of their abilities or disabilities.
Creating accessible websites is important because it gives everyone a fair chance to access information and services on the web. It also helps businesses reach more customers, as disabled people are often excluded from the online world.
The W3C’s standards are voluntary, but they are widely used because they offer the best way to create accessible websites. Many governments and organizations have adopted their standards, and most web developers follow them when creating websites.
