is the personal website and portfolio of Ben Sekulowicz-Barclay, a web-developer and student at the University of Surrey, England.

The work on this site demonstrates my experience as a programmer and developer for the World Wide Web. My academic projects in particular feature creative and experimental work, testing theories and concepts I have learnt from my studies.

My work, (and especially this site) reflect my interest in a semantic and structured Internet. It focuses on maximising the use of compliant mark-up, and the strengths of web standards.

Project: Semantic HTML Generator

The Semantic HTML Generator is the final year project for my Computing degree. It is concerned with assesing submitted mark-up and modifying it so that it conforms to W3C specifications.

HTML is modified to add external styling via CSS, including style sheet based layouts. In addition, accessibility of pages is improved by adding content descriptive metadata to images, links and media data.

The system, intended as an educational tool, is being designed alongside a documented knowledge gathering and development process. The project deadline is May 2004, although a beta system is available at
