Web Standards and AJAX

November 24, 2005

AJAX (Asynchronous Javascript and XML) has been generating a lot of buzz in the web development community since it has been dubbed as such by the folks from Adaptive Path and O'reilly Media.

With the promise that AJAX has shown, I wonder how web standards fit into the picture. It turns out that Jesse James Garrett wrote in his online essay that web standards are actually key components of the AJAX technology. Predictably, web standards define the presentation layer of the AJAX approach.

The core technologies behind AJAX has been around for a while and it is just a matter of how developers and designers wield this emerging tool. Good thing web standards are there to help.
