But do any UAs (or UAs + AT) do that ?  If UA/AT
design had reached the stage where all markup
was equally accessible to all, then we could
happily go back to (say) using tables for layout,
<font> for styling and so on, and consign CSS
to a dustbin marked "no longer required".  But
in reality, UA/AT design is far from that point,
and it therefore behoves both HTML authors and
the designers of HTML to ensure that accessible
markup is permitted, encouraged and exploited.
