Subject: RE: UKNM: Poor web site design
From: Paul Murphy

the point about accessibility within site design <which i believe alongside
usability ought to be the basis of any approach even before you talk about
branding and all that> is not simply about retro-browsers, old machines,
partially sighted users etc but actually about future proofing a site - so
that it will work on webTV, hand-helds and all the stuff that hasn't yet
arrived without the expense of rebuilding from scratch.

you can read more on the topic in the feature on accessibility in issue one
of new media creative that you would have received with your subscription
