Web standards
Jeffrey Zeldman and A List Apart have long been advocating for Web standards the use of CSS and XHTML in Web design. As Netscape 4.x and other browsers not supporting the W3C standards die out, we can justify skipping the old-school HTML methods. From a usability perspective, there are a number of advantages:

- We can build sites that download faster
- We can comply with accessibility laws and guidelines, without sacrificing beauty, performance, or sophistication.
- We can support wireless gadgets, Web-enabled cell phones, PalmPilots, screen readers, and other nontraditional devices.
- We can deliver sophisticated printed versions of any page without creating separate printer-friendly page.
