One of the harsh realities at this time is that Cascading Style Sheets is
primarily a tool for applying visual style, although one would hope this
would change in the near future. The paged and aural media styles (the
latter in particular) are not yet well supported. It is understandable,
therefore, that folks contributing to this mailing list would concentrate on
the visual media styles for the most part. Nevertheless, I have learned that
building websites with accessibility in mind makes it easier to create
visually attractive pages, because all the functionality is taken care of in
the structure and I am freed up to add visual flair without harming
accessibility.
