Accessible Web Page Design:
Table of Contents

News Flash!

The contents of this site have changed little over the past year as Starling Access Services has been working with the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Accessibility Initiative. While most of the rationales for accessible design, and many of the guidelines and techniques reported on these pages are still valid, the future of Web accessibility is being discussed in the wider forum of the Web Accessibility Initiative.

Following the guidance provided on this site will certainly assure that you develop accessible web pages. However, if you plan to use the wonderful accessibility features built in to HTML 4.0 and Cascading Style Sheets, I recommend that you look at the work of the W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative
