This is how it was first done, but one problem exists. The page I used
as
an example, has a main navigation bar at the top. Depending on which
item yoo
select from it a new page shows along with a set of links in a windows
alike
box on the left. When a user selects a link from this list another
window alike
box with appears under it along with new page contents. This can go on
very deep
for some of the pages.

It was decided that for browsers incapable of showing these 'windows'
through CSS
they should be rendered as pagragraphs containing a title and links.

At the bottom I have compiled an exmaple of how the page contents gows,
first
the CSS version secondly the non CSS version.

As I said before the peoblem I found with HPR is that it doesnot regard
the
commas between the links because they're hided by CSS. It doesn't pause
after
blocks, or at line breaks or what ever. When using a list (and leaving
the bullets)
it pauses and reads the bullets, I'm afraid that when hiding the bullets
using CSS
they will not be read and I even suspect the pauses being supressed. But
this is
pure speculation. Also I didn't get the Aural CSS to work with HPR.
