Hi,

Briefly....

In the last two - three years I have committed to designing/developling 
web sites using xhtml/css as part of a move to meet web accessibility and 
also designing with web standards. There are lots of sites out there: 
check out WaSP (http://webstandards.org/)  or 
http://webstandardsgroup.org/ or the work of Zeldman, etc...

My inspiration came earlier on from CSS Zengarden - 
http://www.csszengarden.com/

Using xhtml/css - the coding is better structured and cleaner and can be 
defined better to meet access accessibility and the css gives it great 
styling and formatting....

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Wai-Leng Wong

Cascading Style Sheets for web accessibility







Dear all,

I have found out that, some web sites which are designed in  Cascading 
Style 
Sheets (CSS)are accessible and easy to navigate.
Now, my questions are:
1. How much the CSS based sites are more accessible compare to the web 
sites 
designed in HTML?
2. Is the CSS recommendable to design  web site for accessibility? if yes 
how?
3. Is the Cascading Style Sheets would b easy to learn by blind person?
4. Where do I get material to know about CSS?

Thanks in advance.
