Explain the importance of standards and standards bodies like ECMA.
As older tech is iterated upon, if they push towards standards, competing technologies can start to coincide and build upon each other. More developers become available to adopt the technology and more users can consume it.
When standards bodies decide on standards, they strive towards backwards-compatibility. As new tech becomes old, maintenance can stay efficient. With standards, you can be user that your site that uses positon:fixed will behave in the same manner even when new CSS rules are created and new browsers are released to support them.
There are other bodies relevant to web standards such as ISO, Ecma International. Standard bodies create the standards that make our work as developers more efficient and make the technology we take advantage of as consumers possible.
