Coding to Standards

All Castanet web sites are coded to the standards as laid out by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium). These standards define the rules for writing code such as HTML, XHTML, XML, JavaScript & CSS. This is done to ensure cross compatability between different types of computer systems (Microsoft Windows, Apple's MacOS, Unix, Linux, etc.).

By coding Castanet web sites to standards, we can gurantee that it will look the same (or very close) in any "standards compliant" browser (IE, Firefox, Safari(for MacOS), Opera, Netscape, Konqueror(for Linux) etc.). This ensures that your web site is accessible by the largest possible audience.

On Castanet web sites you will always see the following two images near the bottom of every page.
