XHTML page analysis ?  What's that ?

XHTML pages analyses consist in evaluation of the coding of a Website's pages, in order to reveal the strenghts to maintain, and the weakness to improve.  It's kinda like the Design analysis lab, but instead of evaluating the graphical part of a website, the evaluation is concentrated on its XHTML and CSS code.  This is aimed to help the webmaster to correct his errors in his code, and to optimize it, in order to have a cleaner code as the final result.

How can I make a request ?

First of all, your website must respect a few conditions before your request is accepted :
  • [*]You must have coded your website from A to Z.  We don't accept request for websites, forums, blogs who have been built with a CMS (joomla, drupal, xoops, wordpress, dotclear, phpBB, etc.), or with a free forum, website or blog made in 1 minute (forumotion, invisionfree, sosblog, skyblog, blogger, etc.).  The only exceptions who can be accepted are for templates you coded yourselves.
  • [*]Your HTML must be hand-coded according to XHTML 1.0.  So, websites who have been fully built with *cough cough* Frontpage *cough cough* or with an extremely archaic coding with a bunch of tables and formatting tags without using CSS won't be accepted !  If it's your case, you first have to learn XHTML/CSS with Newbies Paradise's tutorials and recode your page before thinking about making a request..
  • [*]To make sure we can examine your website's code, it must be available online.  If it isn't online yet, wait until you put it online before you post a request.
  • [*]Your website mustn't talk about illegal subject (warez, piracy, nazi, racial hatred), have pornographic or commercial content.  Online casinos, money games websites and sponsorship links are forbidden as well.  For these cases, the link will be censored and the member sanctioned.

If your website doesn't respect one of these conditions, your topic will be locked and moved to garbage.

If your website respects all these conditions, you can post a request.

When you post your request, please put your website's name, your request's date (mm/dd/yy) and a [Waiting] tag in your title.

The following tags will be used for your request's evolution. :
  • [*][Waiting] : Requests who are waiting to be taken in charge
  • [*][In progress] : Requests who have been taken in charge
  • [*][Done] : Request for which the analysis has been delivered
  • [*][Cancelled] : Request who became obsolete

Next, in your message, please show a minimum of politeness (hello,  hi, good afternoon, thanks, etc.).  Requests without any of these politeness phrases will be declined.

In order to help XHTML coders, please use this analysis request form :

[b][color=brown]Site name[/color][/b]
[b][color=brown]Website link[/color][/b]
[b][color=brown]You want us to examine[/color][/b] : XHTML only / XHTML and CSS / CSS only
[b][color=brown]You want this following kind of analysis[/color][/b] : w3c validation errors correction only/Code evaluation only/Both
[b][color=brown]You want an evaluation according to a scale  ?[/color][/b] Yes/No

Note : Before you post a request for a w3c validation errors correction, you must first have submitted your page into the validator and corrected as many errors as you could correct.  If you could correct all errors, you don't need to request for a correction.
W3C Validator's link : http://validator.w3.org/

Once your request is posted, take note that the requests will be processed according to the request date, so you will have to wait until older request have been done before we take your request in charge.

According to the XHTML coders' availability, the max number of active analyses (waiting or in progress) will be limited to 3 requests

Once the analysis is done, your topic will be moved to "Finished analyses"

Can I request for a new analysis ?

You can make a new request only two week after your previous analysis request finished.  You must send a PM to a coder, so we can move your topic back to the analysis requests section.

For coders

When you take an analysis in charge, you have to deliver it within a reasonable delay (3 days).  If you are unable to deliver it within the delay (some unexpected events might happen), please report it, but don't do it too often.  Try to deliver it as soon as possible, to avoid making the request poster wait too long.

If a member requests for an evaluation according to a scale, you have to use a scale on 100%.  This scale may vary according to the requested evaluation.

To give you an idea, here is an example of scale for an evaluation of the XHTML and CSS code
[b]Appropriate use of tags[/b] (abuss of divs or span, tables for layouts, frames, etc.) : 20%
[b]Accessibility - Applications[/b] (Flash, Java, Javascript vs disabling these applications) 25%
[b]Accessibility - XHTML[/b] (skip links and internal navigation links, accesskeys on important links, label linked to the fields in forms) : 20%
[b]Accessibility - Styles[/b] (legibility of texts and use of relative sizes, icon sizez, effects on the eye, contrasts) : 20%
[b]General ergonomy[/b] (easiness to navigate in general) : 15%

But you can also use your own scale.

How to become a coder ?

You must first post your candidature in the "Recrutements/Recruitments" section.

Next, we'll give you a test analysis in order to evaluate you.  If the analysis is satisfactory, you will be accepted and you will have the "ID Code Analyst" rank and moderation rights in the XHTML analyses section.
