A8 Online Portfolio: Website Goals

Validation: The Website should be validated with XHTML 1.0 (strict) and CSS 2.1 using the W3C validation service. This will help to ensure that the website functions correctly across all common browsers and is a good method of checking for errors in coding.

Size (KB): In order to provide fast load times, each web page should have a global size of no more than 500KB. Although this is slightly larger than the optimal recommended maximum file size of 60KB, it is more realistic given the high image content of a portfolio website.

Readable Content: The content of the web page should be written to a FOG Index of 10 to 12, this is a recommended level to ensure readable content of written English accessible to a wide range of target audience.

Accessibility: The website must conform to CS3 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, to levels 1.1, 1.3 and 1.4. This will help to ensure that my site is accessible to a wide target audience.

Coding: The website will be coded using XHTML 1.0(Strict) and CSS 2.1, and may contain elements of Javascript 1.8.1(such as ‘lightbox image gallery’) and PHP 5.3.1 (such as feedback form and current date display’)

Display Size(pixels): The most common computer display resolution is 1024 x 768 pixels. I will design my website to be displayed in this resolution.
