Standards compliance
All pages comply with priority 1 guidelines of the W3 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and the U.S. Federal Government Section 508 Guidelines. All pages validate as XHTML 1 Transitional. They use structured semantic markup. For example, H2 tags are used for blog post titles. In particular, this enables JAWS users to skip to the next post using ALT+INSERT+2.

Navigation aids
All archive pages have rel=previous, next, and home links to aid navigation in text-only browsers and screen readers.

Links
Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target (such as the headline of an article). Whenever possible, links are written to make sense out of context. Many browsers (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, and Opera) can extract the list of links on a page and allow the user to browse the list, separately from the page.

Visual design
This site use cascading style sheets for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable. The layout is designed to fit within an 800px width to avoid the need for horizontal scrolling on smaller screens.
