[thelist] Getting compliant code from normal people

I am very interested to hear what you come up with. My experience has 
been that Option 1 (Educate them) will not work. Most people have taken 
a Dreamweaver class, or maybe even done a little web design back in 
1997 and know for sure that you use font tags (even our corporate web 
designer is the queen of font tags, using them to apply css classes to 
every bit of text! Did she miss the point or what!)

So I'd be curious how this is solved because when I go to my *next* 
company I intend to ensure their web site be done standards-compliant 
as much as possible.

Don't be afraid to try something new. An amateur built the ark.
