Accessible web text

Jim Byrne from the Making Connections Unit (MCU) has posted part two of his introduction to accessible web typography. It re-states the general principles of flexible design, and what this means in relation to specifying text sizes. Among the topics covered are:

  • Why using absolute units to set text sizes is bad for accessibility.
  • Style sheets, the font tag, or presentation markup?
  • Relative units of measurement - good or bad

Part one of Jim’s web typography series is available here, and a complete list of articles on MCU can be found here.
