Reston, VA, April 24, 2006

Deque Systems has launched a fresh, new look for their website, Always at the forefront of innovative solutions for accessibility, privacy, security and quality, Deque decided the time was right to present a new image.

“Choosing to recreate the site using Cascading Style Sheets was at the core of the redesign concept”, said Mary McCormick, media director, Deque Systems, Inc. Cascading Style Sheets, or CSS, is a standard language for the Web intended by its creators, the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) to replace table-based layouts.

“There are clear advantages to cascading style sheets”, said McCormick, “from a design standpoint alone, updating and maintenance time spent on a website is greatly reduced.”

Looking beyond these initial benefits, the separation of content from presentation that style sheets enables is a key factor in accessibility to all Web users, including those with disabilities.

Using cascading stylesheets also makes good business sense. When extensible hypertext markup language (XHTML) is incorporated, as in CSS stylesheets, it opens up innumerable possibilities in terms of evolving internet business to business applications. These applications, which include the need to deliver experiences consistent across other channels, such as mobile devices and interactive media, as well as the internet are being realized and will continue to grow. According to AbilityNet, sites that follow good practices for accessibility are thirty five percent easier to use for everyone. One more compelling reason why Deque welcomes you to the new design of it’s website.
