PSD to (X)HTML5 + CSS3
Nowadays it is more and more popular to separate website design and development. Those who have strong skills in computer graphics and Photoshop are not necessarily experienced in markup codes and style sheets. However, it is not a problem at all since they can focus on design while developers can write the appropriate code according to their reference images. We are also experts at converting JPG files and multi-layer Photoshop images (PSD) to standard compliant, tableless (X)HTML5+CSS3.
Beyond syntactic and structural markup codes the websites of Sikos Web Consulting provide semantic, i.e., machine-readable content. Automatic job offers? Customers automatically directed to your webstore? Not just dreams anymore. Make sure that your homepage provides semantic content to become part of the future of the Web. We are metadata experts providing the widest range of metadata technologies, annotations, taxonomies, vocabularies, and schemes in (X)HTML meta and link tags, Simple and Qualified Dublin Core, IEEE LOM, Open Digital Rights Language, Microdata, Microformats, RDF, RDFa, FOAF, and DOAC.

Web accessibility has recently become a basic or additional legal requirement for many state and governmental websites, bureaus, agencies, schools, academic sites, scientific publications, professionals, and international projects. Accessible websites assure accessibility to web page graphics by the visually impaired using advanced technologies, e.g., screen readers and refreshable Braille displays. This can be obtained by using text labels and descriptors for graphics and tables in the source code. Other disabilities are covered as well. Read more…
Scalable Vector Graphics
Just like in Desktop Pulishing (DTP), vector graphics should be used on the Web too whenever possible. Raster graphics such as photographs contain pixels so they cannot be zoomed without deteriorating quality. Line drawings, signs, symbols, Coat of Arms etc. should be stored in a vector format that can be scaled to any size. For Web publications SVG is one of the best choice since it is described in a strict text format (XML). It is supported by the most up-to-date markup language, HTML5, as well as all modern browsers. The advantages of the format is known for years and is being applied on large sites such as Wikipedia. It can be recommended for all modern websites.
