Subject: [webwatch] Creating accessible tables for layout and data


I have just published a new article on the Making Connections Unit
Website
about creating accessible HTML tables for both layout and data. It is
called
'Table Manners' and you can find it here:
http://www.mcu.org.uk/articles/tables.html

In this article you will find:

*    A discussion about the merits of using Tables or Cascading Style
Sheets
(CSS) for page layout.
*    Techniques for making layout tables accessible.
*    Techniques for making data tables accessible.

I am eager to get some feedback - I am sure not everyone will agree with
my
conclusions.

All the best,
Jim
