That Standards Guy



That Standards Guy is the online persona of Karl Dawson, a web developer living and working in Ipswich, England.

I'm a member of the Guild of Accessible Web Designers and the Web Standards Group and team member at Accessites—an awards site to recognise accessible and usable websites.

I specialise as a front-end developer and worry about the minutae of semantic (X)HTML and CSS, accessibility, microformats, typographic rhythm and grid design. I also care about the user experience and remind myself constantly of visitor site goals when working with clients and their aims.

That Standards Guy is proudly powered by WordPress using my own “StrictlyTSG v3.0” theme. Site Policies.

WSG London, Accessibility

The third London event for the Web Standards Group popped up on my radar yesterday so I wasted no time in booking a place and a return rail ticket. Speaking at the event will be Ann McKeekin from the Royal National Insititute for the Blind (RNIB), Mike Davies from Yahoo! Europe and a new name to me Niqui Merret a Flash developer, instructor and consultant. Flash has a bad rap for accessibility but I think this is more to do with people not using the technology properly - just like with HTML - so I’m looking forward to hear Niqui’s talk. Hope to see some of you there.
