Hi Anders,

For help with accessible forms try http://www.userite.com/web-accessibility/accessible-forms/accessible-form-design.html

An important (and often forgotten) thing is to tie the form field instruction to the relevant form input field with the <label> element.

Hi Anders,
Here are some resources that may help.

WCAG 2.0 HTML and XHTML Techniques 
http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/html.html 

WCAG 2.0 Common Failures
http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/failures.html 

Do a text search for "table" on each page, and also look at techniques for summary, caption, th (header), and td (cell).

Here's another well-regarded site with examples.  http://webaim.org/techniques/tables/

I've moved the html working group to BCC, and added WCAG.

Hi

I write you since I not can find information how I code forms on my web site, so the forms will be accessible for people with disability.

I have tried to look on both the WCAG 1.0 and WCAG 2.0, but here I not can find examples.

Do you have a links to examples, if possible both WCAG 1.0, 2.0, HTML and XHTML?

Since I am new regarding coding of web sites, I will be very happy if you have examples.

Very thanks for your answer.

Regards,
Anders
