Accessibility Information & Tips

  • Use the "ol" element for ordered lists, the "ul" element for unordered lists, and the "dl" element for definition lists. This makes it easier for assistive technology to navigate from list to list or from item to item. Visit http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/H48 for more information.
