GAWDS (The Guild of Accessible Web Designers) is now officialy released.
Created by Jim Byrne and in an ongoing development process by many devoted members. The press release states its purpose:
One of GAWDS immediate goals is to address and debunk myths that lead some Web designers to shrug off standards. Guild members websites will demonstrate the inherent good sense of Web standards and give encouragement and support to designers who adopt standards in their work. There are also longer-term plans to offer accreditation programs that give members a competitive edge through association with and profiling on the GAWDS site.
