British standards body the BSI has published a new software engineering standard so that firms can avoid the website design pitfalls that put off end-users.
The BS ISO/IEC 23026 international standard is aimed at those who design, implement and manage web pages. It seeks to improve the location of information on sites, improve their ease of use, reduce legal liabilities, and provide efficient development and maintenance practices.
The standard includes scope, purpose and conformance; references; definitions, terminology, abbreviations and acronyms; design practices; server, HTTP and site considerations; and header and body information.
The standard is also aimed at managers responsible for establishing guidelines for website development.
