I'm conducting a poster session at a conference soon and want to list on
my poster the "Top Ten Barriers to Web Site Accessibility."  I have on my
list so far - in no particular order (I think I got most of this from the
WAI, but it's been a while ago and I'm not sure):

1) Lack of text alternatives for graphical content (e.g., images as links)
2) Misuse of HTML elements (e.g., using <H2? without <H1> in order to
achieve a certain font size and text position)
3) Absence of meaningful link text (e.g., the ubiquitous "Click Here"
4) Absence of a formal document structure (e.g., sections, subsections,
5) Lack of consistent navigational structures

Additions?  Priorities?  Which is the #1 barrier (or is there a #1?).
