About WebTools

WebTools is an online resource for California state agency webmasters that helps support the efforts of implementing standards, functionality and look and feel into agency websites. Specifically, WebTools provides necessary tools, resources, and implementation guidelines for webmasters to implement  state standards for usability, accessibility, and separation of presentation.
