Here's a great cause that's worth helping: A few members of evolt.org's thelist list-serv have begun a campaign to put together an informational kit that explains, in plain English, why sites should adopt Web standards. In theory, it'd be an explanatory white paper -- complete with charts, laws and real-life case studies -- that Web designers could take to their bosses/managers/clients and say, "This is why our site should be standards-compliant. Here's the proof."
All right! I can't wait to see what they come up with. The best part is, anyone can help. They've set up a Yahoo Group and have begun preliminary discussions on where the group is going and who's helping out with what. Do the Web a favor and check 'em out.
