456 Berea Street is linking to a great discussion on accessibility.

I've started using a great functional accessibility evaluator lately. A superb tool for testing and fixing accessibility issues on websites. A very powerful tool. Register for a free account and it gets even better.

The restructuring of the VTTI website is complete. They didn't want a redesign in the traditional sense, they wanted to update and improve what they had. I've updated the colors and textures, as well as improving the quality of HTML and CSS. The end result is a site with a simpler color palette, and improved overall functionality. The load time is down, and the design is now consistent across browsers and platforms. As a side benefit, it's also much easier to maintain and expand.
