D. Kieth Robinson is Sick of web standards. I’ll quote most of it here…
There are basically four reactions to posts on Web standards and frankly more advocacy doesnÃ¢Â€Â™t seem to be helping most of them.
1 You Already Get It
Well, this one is pretty obvious. You read a post on Web standards, you agree with it and can see all the advantages. I donÃ¢Â€Â™t really need to talk to you any more.
2 YouÃ¢Â€Â™ll Never Get It
No matter what I say, no matter how much real world or theoretical evidence I supply, youÃ¢Â€Â™ll never see the value of Web standards. Good luck to you. I donÃ¢Â€Â™t need to talk to you any more.
3 You Expect Too Much
These people bother me the most. YouÃ¢Â€Â™re the person for whom nothing less that 100% valid code on every page I build is enough. In your mind I should just keep my mouth shut if I canÃ¢Â€Â™t Ã¢Â€Âœwalk the walk.Ã¢Â€Â? Fine, IÃ¢Â€Â™ll do that. I donÃ¢Â€Â™t want to talk to you any more. See you in the real world.
4 YouÃ¢Â€Â™re Interested and You Want To Know More
This is where IÃ¢Â€Â™ve been trying to target most of my work. YouÃ¢Â€Â™re the person who might be new to Web standards, but youÃ¢Â€Â™ve just not been able to get your head around it. You work in the real world and want to see real world benefits. You want people to Ã¢Â€ÂœshowÃ¢Â€Â? rather than Ã¢Â€ÂœtellÃ¢Â€Â?.
I think he’s right.
