Web Developer Resource Index: Standards

At the heart of Standards on the Web lies the World Wide Web Consortium (aka the W3C or w3.org). Formed in 1994 by Tim Berners-Lee at the MIT LCS, after having invented the Web at CERN just a few years earlier. The W3C develops interoperable technologies (specifications, guidelines, software, and tools) to lead the Web to its full potential [http://www.w3.org/]

The W3C is an international group of industry and academic professionals with these goals in mind. It is not a controlling body, you are free to adopt and use the standards (or recommendations) they issue if you wish, or you may choose to ignore them. I will allow the other advocates listed in this category, and elsewhere in this Resource Index, to present their arguments for doing so.
