On two occasions I have been asked, 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.—Charles Babbage

Standards Compliance

At Compass Rose Technologies, we specialize in creating standards-compliant Web sites using Extensible HyperText Markup Language and Cascading Style Sheets, as recommended by the authority on Web standards, The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

Extensible HyperText Markup Language (XHTML) is a stricter reformulation of ordinary HTML, and is intended to replace it. Written as an XML application, XHTML is more strictly defined than HTML and forces a degree of separation between the content of a Web page and its layout, resulting in greater reliability and more flexible design.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a hierachical style sheet language that allows authors to externally specify style elements for structured documents such as XML applications. CSS simplifies Web site development and maintenance by separating the layout of documents from their content. This allows for more consistent layout, and allows authors to modify the style and layout of multiple Web pages all at once by changing a single style sheet.
