Keep those tool suggestions coming! Love it.
Here are my favorite tools, most of which you have heard before.
For developing validated, standards-based code with good separation of
content from presentation:
o Firebug, an add-on for FireFox that greatly speeds up cracking
problems in Web page behaviors
o Web Developer toolbar, very handy set of tools, especially the
live CSS editor and the Outliner
o HTML-Kit, a Windows editor with Tidy built-in.
o Coda, a Mac Web development environment with lots of stuff.
Have not used it much yet but it looks very good and others
have praised it highly
o Accessible Website Drop Down Menu
For analyzing accessibility of pages and sites:
o Colour Contrast Analyzer for Web Pages, from Vision Australia,
a Windows program for evaluating whether your choice of colors
will work for people with color-blindness.
o Cynthia Says, a web site useful when reviewing someone's site
for accessibility problems. The output lists accessibility
criteria, bolding the ones that might be a problem. Talking
over the whole listing with the person helps them understand
Useful informational Web sites and blogs:
o Guild of Accessible Web Designers, remarkably good blog focused
o Boxes and Arrows, general blog for Web designers, with lots of good
articles about accessibility in the real technology world
o A List Apart, of course.
