Professional vs. Unprofessional web development practices

Le blog personnel de Joe Clark: Failed Redesigns Joe Clark tears into some sites who fail to redesign with the latest standards in mind. Instead they still contain tag soup, tables, or other design factors he labels unprofessional. He says the designers should have known better.

The question becomes, for me, Are we teaching students to know better? If your students leave your classroom thinking tables-based layouts and tag soup are the way to do things, then have you failed as a teacher? Have you turned people loose in the workplace who are less than professional? I think the answer is yes.

We need to work toward ensuring that college teachers meet professional standards so that students will reach the same levels of professionalism.
