Why lose audience (or customers) when you don’t have to? Shouldn’t your site be accessible to everyone? If you’re becoming comfortable with CSS or XHTML, why not master the accessibility techniques needed to accomplish that? They’re surprisingly easy and non-disruptive. Here’s a book you can use as both a primer (or refresher) on XHTML and CSS and a practical guide to accessible design.
Jon Duckett begins with issues that apply independent of accessibility: moving HTML sites to XHTML, using CSS to build effective layouts, and so forth. Next, he turns to accessibility, covering everything from the absolute basics onward. What assistive technologies and guidelines are available? How do you provide text equivalents for nontext items? Check for dynamic content, color, and contrast issues? Create accessible forms and tables? And, crucially, test your site? He even previews emerging issues -- such as accessibility on mobile devices.
