The Top 10 Benefits of Standards-Based Coding
Improve performance: Pages are much lighter (smaller in size) and therefore download faster, because your content only needs minimal structural markup. We can now replace all of the presentational markup we used to load onto the tags in every page of a site with a single style sheet. As you will see, a single style sheet can define the presentation of an entire site and the user only needs to download it once.
Build fluid pages: It's easier to code for varying quantities of dynamic content within your pages. For example, it's much easier to create pages that can accommodate however many items appear in a given listing or menu of your e-commerce store.
Confirm your code is good: Validation services for XHTML and CSS can be used during development to report instantly on errors in your coding. This provides faster debugging, and the assurance that a page is truly completed when it both displays correctly on screen and passes validation.
Streamline production: Production is more efficient. It's too easy for you (the designer) to be side-tracked into content management, because you are the only person who knows where the content goes in the mass of presentational markup, and so you end up being the one to add ita tedious job and probably not what you were hired to do. By adopting standards-based practices, you can provide simple markup rules to the content team and work in parallel on the presentational aspects, knowing their content and your design will marry seamlessly down the line.
Distribute content more easily: Distributing your content for third-party use is much easier because the content is separate from any specific presentation rules, and in many cases, simply not feasible otherwise.
