Here are just a few reasons:
- if your code is standard and uses CSS and is accessible, your 
company is less likely to be sued by a disabled user (a bank I did 
some work for was sued because their Web site was not written in an 
accessible manner).
- longevity of your pages - your pages will work in browsers in 
year(s) to come if you code to standards - the code won't have to be 
- it makes it easier (=quicker & cheaper) for someone else (or 
yourself) to edit your code, especially across multiple pages.
