Daniel Champion is web development manager at Clackmannanshire council, and a fine human being. How do I know that, seeing as I’ve never met him? Simple, he is a standardista. And not only that, but he is a standardista for a government website, and that is fantastic.
This quote sums it all up for me:
There is something of the obsessive about anyone who is responsible for a successful, quality website. It’s born out of wanting to do the right thing and do it well – a view that is now being reflected in an emerging professionalism in the industry, where a commitment to web standards and accessibility is a key characteristic of successful, respected developers.
