As far as I understand http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/#N100C7 (or
http://www.alistapart.com/articles/tohellwithwcag2 which translate it into
point 12 : « CSS layouts, particularly those with absolutely-positioned
elements that are removed from the document flow, may simply be
<http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/#N100C7> prohibited at the highest level.
In fact, source order must match presentation order even at the lowest
level. », I can't agree with that.
 
http://blog.html.it/layoutgala/ shows 40 design based on the same markup,
but with differents visual apparences and ordering. It is accessible !
 
Accessibility means that the content must be *understandable* without the
CSS, not that it should be presented in the same order.
