And The Winner is... | March 7, 2004

The judging is over, the votes are cast, and our esteemed judges have come to an almost unanimous decision. So it’s with much pleasure that I’d like to announce the 85th PGA Championship site as Web Standards Awards Site of the Month for February.

Despite some peoples misgivings, the quality of February’s award winners has been universally high. We are always looking out for sites that are visually appealing and marry usability and accessibility, with creative use of web standards. If you have been involved in creating such a site, or feel a particular site should be considered for an award, please don’t hesitate to send in your submission.

I really like that the site remains fully functional if you do not have flash installed.

A very nice site and a very today use of drop shadows :-)

I must ask about your criteria, though, vis a vis “tables are used for tabular data”. I wasn’t aware this was a requirement for either validation or for the making of a truly accessible web site. While using the float property to create columnar layouts is a very nice transitional tactic, you may be giving beginners the idea that it is the only way to deploy CSS in an acceptable way. This is just not so.

The CSS doesn’t validate in jigsaw. Am I missing something here?
