This would all be a lot easier if browsers fully (and consistently)
supported CSS, and if there was a reliable method of detecting what was
being used. I don't know of a way to reliably present one interface to
users of Internet Explorer alone and another to users of Internet
Explorer + JAWS, and another to some other combination of
software/hardware. So the better design solutions will have to wait
until user agents catch up.
