The Web Standards Project (WaSP) is collaborating with Microsoft to promote Web standards and help developers build standards conformant Web applications.
Today we formally announce the WaSP / Microsoft Corporation Task Force. WaSP’s goal is to provide technical guidance and advice as the company increases Web standards support in its products including Microsoft Visual Studio and ASP.NET.
“Standards are of increasing importance as Web developers strive to make their sites work across all browsers and accessible by the broadest set of customers,”
– Brian Goldfarb, product manager for Web Platform and Tools at Microsoft.
WaSP and Microsoft developers will work together to better understand and execute on Web standards as defined by standards bodies such as the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
- For more details about the task force, please see the official press release.
