The thing to speak about this week in Spain is the end of the football league. But I don’t follow it!!
Let’s restart: the thing to speak about this week in Spain, regarding the “web world”, is the new website of the Spanish Congress, www.congreso.es. This new version was worth a bit less than 200 thousand euros. And it’s probably the worst HTML I’ve ever seen… just thousands of lines of tag soup. Just try to see the source code (right click in the page, and “View Source Code”)… even if you don’t know anything about HTML, you can see some really weird things, like a thousand of lines of CSS definitions that are stupid. It’s quite impossible to do it worse!
The truth is that it’s quite clear that some kind of robot has generated all this tag soup. Humans are not in this magnitude of stupidity. Finally, all the government’s websites must follow (by law) standards and usability guidelines: I guess they haven’t any idea of what this really means.
“Welcome to Spain”… What a shame!
