Web standards for news sites

Adrian Holovaty’s open email to Staci D. Kramer of Online Journalism Review makes an excellent case for the adoption of web standards by online news sites. It’s written in nice, clear non technical terms and does a good job of explaining the web standards movement in a short space of time. Could definitely be useful for forwarding on to non-technical people (managers for example?) to help spread the word.
