Refer to Semantic Web FAQ page at
http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/SW-FAQ

The instructions at the beginning of the FAQ suggest that  the questions may
be expanded to reveal the answers. But this can only be done with a mouse
and not from a keyboard.
The questions appear to be marked up as h2 but are not marked up as
hyperlinks (anchors)  and hence cannot be tabbed to. Nor do they come up in
a link-list drawn up by a screen reader.
It is only when a one mouses over an FAQ that one realizes that it can be
clicked.
Every question is followed by  a link whose text=permalink. The link text
does not uniquely convey the target of the link.
