Website Design Standards
VirusInc focuses on developing web sites that not only look good, but work right.
Our expert programmers and technicians develop and implement web sites that load quickly and offer a consistent and intuitive navigation interface.
Your visitors will always know where they are, how to get to where they want to be and what they will find there. Your site will always deliver content clearly, quickly and easily.
How it's done
Wherever possible, VirusInc uses lean, standards-compliant code with XHTML (Extensible HyperText Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). By utilizing these “lean” codes almost exclusively, VirusInc can ensure that your web site’s pages will load in seconds (even with dial-up connections), and can be viewed using any browser. Your site will be more accessible to search engine inquiries for information located there. The easier it is to gather pertinent information, the higher your search results rankings will be. Additionally, future changes to your site’s look and feel or information architecture can be implemented more easily, since the site is less resource intensive.
How it works
Conformance with W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) guidelines will help to increase your market share and your site’s audience reach since visitors to your site will find it user friendly and easy to navigate. Additionally, by adhering to W3C recommendations, you demonstrate a commitment to social responsibility by ensuring consistent ease of access to the information, product or services presented on your site. Many of these same recommendations will also improve the performance of your site and reduce ongoing maintenance efforts.
By conforming to W3C’s guidelines, VirusInc ensures that your site’s navigation will be clear and consistent. Visitors will feel relaxed and at ease while browsing effortlessly throughout your site. They will find content that is clear and comprehensible and delivers information in a unique and entertaining manner. Since some graphics and pictures are not viewable by all browsers, your site’s content will deliver the message they might not “see.”
Your web site’s innovative information architecture will make it easy for visitors to understand the site’s structure, and effortlessly locate information of interest or importance to them.
The use of master style sheets (files on your server containing style markup relating to all pages on a site) allows quick and comprehensive changes to the overall look and feel of your site. A style sheet file contains display instructions for numerous display technologies. This simplifies the complex process of editing each web page to accommodate ever-changing technology. With master style sheets, only one edit is necessary. Style sheets also facilitate the transfer of information from the site to different peripheral devices such as printers or projection screens for lecture presentations.
Finally, just as countries throughout the world continue to adopt anti discrimination policies, the W3C’s Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) ensures equal access to all electronically generated information. Laws may vary internationally, but the W3C does maintain a website design listing of country specific laws and policies. VirusInc’s adherence to these guiding principles makes certain that your site performs within these legal parameters.
