    TEN COMMANDMENTS OF ACCESSIBILITY
    *********************************

    1. Thou shalt worship Bobby and shall have no other accessibility checkers before him.

    (And no 'marquee' tags either. They are so Internet Explorer! Some of us do use other browsers, you know.)

    2. Thou shalt use 'alt' tags and/or 'title' tags in your images, because many people browse with images switched off. Also because some partially sighted or blind people use screen readers, which obviously cannot 'read' images.

    3. Thou shalt not use 'alt' tags in each and every one of your 'spacer' gifs.

    Although it would be technically correct to use 'alt' tags in spacer gifs, it would obviously be a nightmare if a disabled person (or anyone for that matter) had to listen to a screen reader reading out the 'alts' in all of these tags. And besides, those hundred plus spacer gifs are only there because you can't design properly to begin with. Yes I am bitchy aren't I?

    4. Thou shalt use javascript only as a last resort because many people browse with javascript switched off.

    If you do have to use javascript then remember to use a noscript tag and provide a way for someone without javascript to use your site.

    5. Thou shalt not use Java applets, because many people browse with Java switched off.

    Basically, people are so fed up of waiting for slow loading, jerky applets that usually contribute little to our enjoyment of either life or your website. And as for that java applet of a shimmering lake, if I never see that again...
