Hey guys, I made a new site for my hosting company. I made it really accessible -- checkpoint two site for sure. It's written to XHTML Strict, uses sematic mark-up, all that jazz. This site uses a more solid CSS than my portfolio, I hope so anyway. Please tell me what you think. Have some fun with it with the Firefox Web Dev tools: disable images, disable colors, removes styles, etc. It degrades nicely which is one advantage to making a site this way. Please tear it apart from an accessibilities standpoint.
If someone can, please let me know what's wrong with my forms. I guess I'm supposed to use "selected" on my pulldowns, but I don't know how to apply it and pass validation. It tells me my fields have to be populated, which they are, so I'm confused. The forms work great (try contact, check out the result return), they just don't pass priority three, mechanical that is.
Should be an unordered list and you could add the bullet points in with CSS, although to get the bullets with IE you'd still have to use •. And what's with the single quotes? I know you're not using XHTML 1.1 and sending as application/xhtml+xml, but if in the future you decide you want to, you'll have to go back and fix this.
Also, I notice that a lot of the text is light gray on a light gray background, that's gonna seriously hard to read for some people to read. And I didn't even notice the yellow underline for your <abbr>'s until I accidentally moused over one.
These are just a couple of quick points that I noted, I'll probably come back and post more later.
