The business value of Web standards

This week's Design and Usability Tactics e-newsletter examines the business value of Web standards. What are your thoughts on building standards-compliant sites? Do you always adhere to standards? If not, what situations or reasons usually cause you to veer; is it usually a personal decision or a client request?

I stick to standards as much as I can and promote them in my sites but a problem I tend to have is that none of my sites pass the 'Bobby' test regardless of my efforts. This can be annoying when clients mention 'Bobby' themselves.
Aside of that ALL my sites aim and pass 4.01 transitional before they go online.
