Have you noticed that web sites are looking - and working - better than ever these days? Why is that?

Site managers and designers have turned to the use of web page design standards. They've come to see that best site design management, search engine optimization, user experience and ROI are all held together with one idea: web page design standards.

Are you still designing web sites like it was the Wild West without law and order? Do you think that rules are barriers to creating great design? Are your designs looking dated but you don't know why?

Join Bud Kraus, Web Design Instructor and Consultant as he makes the case for why web design standards are changing the face of the web and why you should be turning to them as well. He'll discuss:

• The Evolution Of Web Design
• What Are Web Page Design Standards
• Why Are Businesses And Organizations Embracing Standards?
• Examples Of Sites Using Design Standards
• Some Ideas About Re-making Your Site Using Standards
