Max Design, a Sydney, Australia-based design firm, has posted a comprehensive checklist of web design standards. As they say, designing to standards means to

"adhere to standards (HTML, XHTML, XML, CSS, XSLT, DOM, MathML, SVG etc) and pursue best practices (valid code, accessible code, semantically correct code, user-friendly URLs etc). In other words, a site built to web standards should ideally be lean, clean, CSS-based, accessible, usable and search engine friendly."

This is an excellent one-stop source for the kinds of things that modern web developers and designers should keep in mind when developing new sites with standards in mind. It's hard to imagine any professional developer who doesn't at least attempt to design to standards these days. For those still learning what the mysterious "standards" are, this checklist not only gives excellent short descriptions, but also provides relevant links to documents that provide more information.
