Bob :

         I think that it would depend on your client...what type of company
they are, and what kind of audience the site is for. Obviously, if your
client's intended audience is not computer savvy, then they will have not
idea as to what it means that a page is compliant.  I don't know of any
commercial sites that have such a designation (at least not on their front
page).  By all means let your client know that you have coded for them a
site that is standards compliant, and tell them what that means.
