Web Standards Junkies Rejoice

November 29, 2005 by

If you dream of a world where every web site uses CSS and tables are relegated to the Smithsonian, then Godbit.com is for you. If you’re scratching your head, it’s all about web standards.

Godbit is a site dedicated to helping the church learn how to use and make the most of web standards. It may seem like techno-speak to some of us, but using proper web standards can mean the difference between hand-coding a few hundred pages to change the font and making the change in one single motion with CSS. That can translate to big money savings, and that’s only part of the reason why you should care.

    To be honest, I was afraid it would flop, but I’m trying to take heart in the words of Zechariah 4:10 and not “despise the day of small beginnings.”

    I’ve been loving on it a few days already. :)
