Getting the community on line - some basics

We're very much involved at the high-tech end of internet programming and web site development and training. But it's really good for me good to see the other end of the spectrum, from time to time, and an hour's seminar at Chippenham Library last night, run by the local community web team, was an ideal opportunity. And always being one to make double and treble re-use of time, it's also a chance for me to see the background of how we should be putting our own community pages together ;-) - Community page for Save the Train

It comes as a useful reminder to me ... when putting HTML / pages together to tell people ...
• that an <h1> tag is a big headline and an <h6> is small, not the other way
• that color is spelt WITHOUT a u (groans when our presenter said "must spell it the American way")
• that once you've uploaded an image to your web site, you can turn your computer off and even disconnect as people don't have to get it from you each time
• that the <font> tag is deprecated.

I'm also reminded
• that you can put a W3C logo on a site even if the pages are not W3C compliant
• that even community lead, local authority sponsored web sites don't necessarily conform to the DDA act or the laws on having mailing lists that offer users an unsubscribe option
• that every site with a login for "Joe Public" needs a forgotten password script
• that projectors should be adjusted (angle and keystone and focus) before a presentation.
• that people want to be able to upload pictures, video clips, and soundtracks.

Actually, our presenter did a good job of showing us around the Wiltshire Community Web site as potential content providers.
