Oggetto: Re: Re-post: Influence of valid code on screen readers

This is the most important accessibility-related argument for 
conformance to specifications, and it extends well beyond HTML. The more 
content developers depart from specifications, the harder it is to 
create tools that reliably operate on Web content to construct a 
presentation that meets the needs of the user, or otherwise help to make 
the content more accessible.

Roberto Scano:
And also remember that you serve page in XHTML you should use
application/xhtml+xml and web browser like Firefox - that correctly read the
document like XML when served differently from text/html - break the page
with errors: so invalid code means also inaccessibility for future web
content produced in conform XHTML.
