But that is not how real world web sites are designed.  Typically the 
initial spec calls for lots of gimmicks.  This get compromised slightly 
when the coders say it is too difficult.  Finally  accessibility gets 
bolted on, as an afterthought.  (In the case of intranet applications, 
it gets bolted on when a customer demands it.)
