Front end HTML development

I first started dabbling in HTML in 1998 when I started building projects on a freelance basis. Since then I have become a proficient front-end developer, writing w3c standard-compliant and accessible markup, including building sites to AA accessibility standards. I have a lot of experience producing pixel-perfect HTML and CSS from PSDs, and have built countless HTML emails. I also develop XSLT to transform XML into XHTML.

Each freelance website I develop is cross-browser tested as standard for IE6 - 9, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari on Windows, Mac and iPhone & iPad platforms.

In addition to my frontend skills, I have years of experience with AJAX and manipulating the DOM with JavaScript and jQuery, integrating Google Maps and working with a wide range of APIs. I have also written an iGoogle application for MPORA.

Please contact me if you would like help with a web development project.
