Diving in to accessibility

Comment

Today’s major events consisted of an impromptu day trip to Portland, and major behind-the-scenes tweaking right here on the site.

For those who don’t know, Mark Pilgrim’s Dive Into Accessibility is an incredibly useful guide to ensuring that one’s blog (and, by extending the concepts, general web pages) is viewable by everyone, regardless of browser type or user.

Been trying to implement as many of these suggestions as possible, which has been easier than it could have been because I’ve actually been paying a lot of attention to browser compatibility all along (paying attention, but not always succeeding!). I know there’s not really much of an audience here, but at least it makes me feel better. Anyways, new features include:

More to come later, I’m sure. In the meantime, check out the guide. Perhaps you’ll want to make your own site more accessible too.

I’ll post all about the Portland adventure tomorrow. Sleep beckons.
