The Best Practices section can be accessed and used as a reference guide when creating or developing content from the start. Each best practice provides code-level remediation guidance and examples of compliant and non-compliant code. It also shows what standards the best practice is mapped to and what violations correspond with a violation of the best practice. This ensures that all requirements are clearly defined at the initial development stages which is the most efficient, cost effective, and ideal situation. The Best Practices are categorized by technology platform and content type. For more information on the Best Practices tab in AMP, please visit the Best Practices section of our support documentation.
The Standards section of the Best Practices section provides a list of all active standards for an organization. Users can select specific standards from the list to view the Best Practices that map to the chosen standard and their sub sections (paragraphs or success criteria). This information clearly outlines the atomic accessibility conditions which must be met in order to ensure full compliance with the standards.
