The "Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0" are a W3C specification
providing guidance on accessibility of Web sites for people with disabilities.
They have been developed by the W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative.
The specification contains fourteen guidelines which are general principles
of accessible design. Each guideline is associated with one or more
checkpoints describing how to apply that guideline to particular features
of Web pages.
These guidelines not only make pages more accessible to people with
disabilities, but also have the side benefit of making pages more accessible
to all users, or to users using different browsers or one of the emerging
handheld or voice-based computers.
