The website for the FUTURAGE group at Sheffield University is online (albeit in a first release version!): http://futurage.group.shef.ac.uk. This has been a great project to work on. The specification required a strict standards-based and accessible construction, which I think we have achieved without sacrificing the aesthetic aspects of the design. Employing the fantastic Google Translator tool reflects the pan-European nature of the site users.
So, a W3C-validating, WCAG-AA conforming site that looks great and works well for both end-users and the group itself, who maintain the content through a customised MODx installation. And all of that created with the support of a well-informed and capable client: what a difference that makes!
The site is now live at http://futurage.group.shef.ac.uk
