A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website.

He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.


HTML 5.2 is Done, HTML 5.3 is Coming

The W3C has completed its second round of HTML5 recommendations for implementation. The entire announcement is worth a read because there are interesting tidbits that provide more context and personnel changes within W3C, but the highlights of this recommendation are nicely summed up: Many of the features added integrate other work done in W3C. The Payment Request API promises to make commerce on the Web far easier, reducing the risks of making a mistake or being caught by an unscrupulous operator. New security features such as Content Security Policy protect users more effectively, while new work incorporated from ARIA helps developers offer people with disabilities a good user experience of their applications. There are also semantic changes to HTMl elements that are worth noting: Clarifications and bug fixes bring the HTML Recommendation closer to what has been deployed recently.

Avoidable Design Flaws That Can Hurt Your Site

Inspired Magazine Inspired Magazine – creativity & inspiration daily The web was supposed to get better,  that was the promise.  And you’d think it would have, with all the increased awareness of accessibility and usability considerations.  But strangely enough, we’re more than 25 years in, and things are actually getting worse in general.  How could this be so? It can’t be blamed on education.  Every course in Internet Design and Development worth its salt covers the fundamentals of good design principles, usability, and accessibility.  It can’t be blamed on the engineering standards, because the W3C guidelines are stricter and more clearly defined than ever before.  Nor can it be blamed on technology, because the technology is more supportive of developing high quality sites, not less. No, the answer to this paradox is actually quite simple.  It’s because designers have had their power stripped away by the demands of marketers and…

The Document Outline Dilemma

For the past few weeks there has been lots of talk about HTML headings in web standards circles. Perhaps you’ve seen some of the blog posts, tweets, and GitHub issue threads. Headings have been part of HTML since the very first websites at CERN, so it might be surprising to find them controversial 25 years later. I’m going to quickly summarize why they are still worth discussing, with plenty of links to other sources, before adding my own opinions to the mix. If you’re up-to-date on the debate, you can jump straight to the “Bigger Dilemma” section. The Story So Far… HTML uses headings (<h1>, <h2>, <h3>, and so on until <h6>) to mark up titles for a subsequent section of text. The numbers (or levels) of the heading elements are supposed to logically correspond to a tree-like structure of nested sections, like books that have chapters with sections and…

Random Interesting Facts on HTML/SVG usage

Last time, we saw how the average web page looks like using data from about 8 million websites. That’s a lot of data, and we’ve been continuing to sift through it. We’re back again this time to showcase some random and hopefully interesting facts on markup usage. Hiding DOM elements There are various ways of hiding DOM elements: completely, semantically, or visually. Considering the current practices and recommendations, check out the findings on the most used methods to hide things via HTML or CSS: Selector Count [aria-hidden] 2,609,973 .hidden 1,556,017 .hide 1,389,540 .sr-only 583,126 .visually-hidden 136,635 .visuallyhidden 116,269 .invisible 113,473 [hidden] 31,290 no-js HTML class When JavaScript libraries like Modernizr run, the no-js class is removed and it’s replaced with js. This way you can apply different CSS rules depending on whether JavaScript is enabled or not in your browser. We found a total number of 844,242 elements whose HTML…
