Compliant Browsers/Helper Applications

What does all this mean to me?

Many current and future technologies depend on these web standards in order to operate. This means that you will receive a better web experience that uses the latest technology to bring you better web pages in less time.

The IAUS Website uses the following standards in order that our site's content will be made available to the widest possible number of people, browsers, and Internet devices:

What are Web Standards?
Why do we care about Accessibility Issues?

"Web standards are created by the World Wide Web Consortium. Standards compliance makes it easier for people with special needs to use the Web. Blind people may have their computer read Web pages to them. People with poor eyesight may have pages rearranged and magnified for easier reading. And people using hand-held devices can browse the Web just as easily as those using high-end workstations.

There are also many reasons for developers to be concerned with Web standards. Search engines can do a better job of indexing sites, for example. Using browser-specific code often doubles or triples the work to create Web pages, and leaves a lot to be desired when new media are introduced. This situation will only get worse without the sound direction of Web standards." (Quote from the website:

"The most important thing to understand in terms of making a site accessible is that people use the Web in very different ways. A site should therefore present information in a way that people can access it regardless of what kind of hardware or software they are using, and regardless of how they navigate through a site. Web designers cannot assume that everyone uses the same kinds of devices the same way." (Quote from W3 website:
