RE: [Sigia-l] RE: Web Standards and I.A.s
Thanks for the responses (ciao luca!). Let me clarify. What I am curious
about is, if you are primarily working as an Information Architect, what
role did you play in the process of building a web-standards (WS) site?
Markup? Accessbility? CSS? The entire front end? Nothing? What size was
your team, or was it just you?
For THIS thread, I don't want to get into the pros and cons of WS, such
as which sites have launched with it, and all that. I am specifically
interested in the role(s) the IA played in the design process.

I believe in a deep link between IA and W3C Web Standards (Xhtml plus
Css2 design) - in general - and Accessibility - in particular.
I think the structure vs. presentation separation is the trait d'union
between IA and Standards.
Both Standards and IA look at the semantic layer of a structure - and I
think Standard & Accessibility can help the Architect in his mission.
So it's a lot of time I left tables to embrace Xhtml and CSS
positioning, also in projects not requiring them.
Adaptive Path was redesigned by standards with a lot of advantages, see
About the value of standards and their rapport with design, see also
Recently I worked to accessible redesign of <www.sistemapiemonte.it>.
