Gardner Information Design employs valid XHTML in all its front-end web development and custom web design work.

The W3C Markup Validation Service at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) provides the W3C XHTML 1.0 icon to indicate that a page uses valid XHTML.

Test the markup for this page (new site):

W3C Valid XHTML 1.0 (new site)

Why is this important?

The fact that we use XHTML is important to you because it indicates that we are constructing websites using the highest standards. XHTML is like HTML, except that it has stricter rules and is more structured. What this means is that the quality of the websites we build is much greater and your pages are more likely to display properly for a wider range of visitors.

Coding in XHTML is a first step in staying compliant with the most recent standards. Sites coded in XHTML are cleaner and are ready for conversion to XML (eXtended Markup Language), future versions of XHTML, and dynamically built Web pages.

XHTML is the display language for XML. XML provides more flexibility in the way content can be used, and dynamically built Web pages mean that pages can be customized to your business interests and personal needs. We believe that XML has already revolutionized the Web by making it possible to create a wide range of interactive Web applications.

By coding in XHTML, we are well prepared to stay flexible as technology evolves and to keep your visitors coming back.

GIDI also provides conversion services for existing websites, to bring them up to XHTML standards.
