Technical Aspects of Web Page Design

Accessibility is not always buried in the lines of HTML code written for a page. Accessibility lies solely with the Web page designer; the designer must design for accessibility. What does this mean?

This means the designer must have a page that is comfortable enough for the visitor to explore while remaining interested in the page. The Web Master can make the information as user friendly as possible and still organize the information on the page to make it comprehendible.

This approach leads to understanding and there is no more basic reason for having a Web page than to transfer information in an understandable manner. Bells and whistles may confuse Web site visitors. People are not necessarily comfortable with distractions and this leads to problems with comprehension as well as accessibility. Will visitors remember what the designer wants them to remember or will they remember how fancy the page is?
