Let Them Eat Cake: A List Apart

Let Them Eat Cake: A List Apart - this is an article on making your web pages both accessible AND usable. For it to work you must have a well structured page, with links to various parts of the page at the top. Add in a bit of CSS and DOM compliant JavaScript and your done.

The good thing is it works with JavaScript disabled. The code is kept entirely separate from the content so you can have the page in XHTML Strict mode (no inline CSS or JavaScript, the example uses XHTML Strict). There is very little JavaScript involved. For those with older browser (IE4, Netscape 4), the user will just get the basic page - but as very few people use these browsers, most visitors will get the best experience.
