About Us

The goal of WebStandardsSherpa.com is to provide web professionals the opportunity to receive feedback, glean advice and learn best practices from experts in the field to help them improve the quality of their own work.

About WaSP

Founded in 1998, the Web Standards Project (WaSP) advocates for standards that reduce the cost and complexity of website development while increasing the accessibility and long-term viability of any site published on the web. We work with browser companies, authoring tool makers, and our peers to deliver the true power of standards to this medium.
