The new site design and navigation is much improved. The site's home page breaks about every rule there is in professional web design. Guilford County cannot and should not break both WC3 and ADA standards; it's a bad policy. Just like you'd have ramps for wheelchair users, you should have an ADA compliant site.Tell him to put a DOC TYPE in for starters. And the home page is 31K which is about 2-3x the normal dose. Those poor poor dialup users.

As for the DOC TYPE entry you may need to look closer. I've been told it is in there and complies with the standard…The ADA compliance is on the radar screen, but requires a second type site built and will take time from what I understand.

At least the County is working with a local designer. Yes, more work to be done perhaps, but a vast imrpovement and the money is staying in our community.

It is a local designer/programming firm, isn't it?

Nope. Scott Redmon, County Web Analyst, designed the look and feel of the site, and Bill Bailey (until recently, Webmaster for the County) helped with the "back end" (scripting & database) work.

We fully understand that the alt tags, descriptions, keywords, etc are missing at this time....we are working on completing that as quickly as possible...you have to understand that we had to quickly address a problem and get a solution in place...the site that you currently see was built to allow for easy updating of content...the old site was being hand-coded using html and required day to day mainteance just to keep content flowing.......therefore not allowing future development and initiatives to be made..........The site that is currently there will also be changed again in the near future once all the county departments have the opportunity to get their own website built...the alt tags, descriptions, etc....are being placed within the site once that phase of development is dealt with...be patient..
