+<h2 id=accessibility>A note about accessibility</h2>
+<p><em>(This section is not normative.)</em>
+<p>The facilities in this specification allow elements from a document
+to be displayed in a visual order that is to a large extent
+independent of the order in the document. That may have both positive
+and negative effects on accessibility. The positive aspect is that it
+allows the content in the document to be kept in logical order, so
+that the document is as functional as possible without the style sheet
+and on media where the style sheet doesn't apply. A negative aspect is
+that a document that has a defined tab order (the order in which
+elements get the focus when the tab-key is pressed) will show on the
+screen with a tab order unrelated to the visual order. It may be
+necessary to use the keyboard control features of the CSS Basic User
+Interface module [[CSS3UI]] to ensure that the tab navigation follows
+the visual order, or to refrain from positioning semantically related
+elements in different parts of a template.
+<p>The following two requirements from the Web Content Accessibility
+Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 [[WCAG20]] are particularly relevant. See that
+specification for more information.
+><strong>1.3.2 Meaningful Sequence:</strong></a> When the sequence in
+which content is presented affects its meaning, a <a
+>correct reading sequence</a> can be <a
+">programmatically determined.</a> (Level A)
+><strong>2.4.3 Focus Order:</strong></a> If a <a
+href="http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-WCAG20-20081211/#webpagedef" >Web
+page</a> can be <a
+>navigated sequentially</a> and the navigation sequences affect
+meaning or operation, focusable components receive focus in an order
+that preserves meaning and operability. (Level A)
