“what I’m trying to communicate is that *this new article* is a resource that developers can use to demonstrate that companies are deploying standards-based web apps.”
“This article on A List Apart doesn’t explain specifics of our CSS files because there *already ALA articles on those subjects*.”
I’m sorry to harp on but CSS isn’t the only issue in standards-based development. For example, I would have been interested in knowing how you dealt with converting plain text input entries into structural markup. However you have established that this article can be used to demonstrate the commerical value of XHTML/CSS to business decision makers, so I’d agree that such nitty-gritty technological discussions are innaproriate.
In that case, I would argue that the following sample of questions did not help advocate the commerical benefits of standards.
...in what special ways does TypePad meet those content producers’ needs
would TypePad be a poor choice for a school, church, or other small organization…
Why should web producers interest themselves in products from a small company like Six Apart? Shouldn’t they wait for a more respectable product from a bigger company like Macromedia or even Microsoft?
What else should we know about TypePad, Movable Type, or Six Apart?
Anil, my problem is not with your responses. Its the way most of the interview provided little scope for anything but marketing fluff.
