Hello Alan and everyone,

I agree with this point.  Many UK Web designers know nothing about HTML. 
They use point-and-click design tools, and don't know an ahref from a mailto.

To give them a hand, we produced a simple factsheet 'hints on designing
accessible web sites'.  This has proved to be extremely popular.


The factsheet features a number of WAI and RNIB print legibility

It is not intended to replace WCAG or even to be an overview of them.  It is
simply a gentle introduction that aims to show that accessible design is simple
and achievable.

I welcome any 'non-geek' guidelines.  

Best wishes

1.7 million people in the UK experience a serious sight problem or blindness.
Poor Web design prevents many disabled people from getting the most from
the Web. Support our campaign for better Web design!
