Chapter 15. Supporting Accessibility wit... > Styling the Air Judging Form

Styling the Air Judging Form

Let’s take another look at the AIR judging form we developed in Chapter 10. Now, however, we’ll focus on the visual presentation of the form. Instead of using structural elements to achieve presentation effects or using presentation elements to create the appearance of structure, we’ll use CSS to bring out the structure of the form. This is what we meant when we said earlier that there isn’t a real contradiction between the WCAG 1.0’s recommendation to use style sheets to control presentation and layout and the Section 508 requirement to organize documents in such a way that they can be read without style sheets.

Reviewing the AIR Judging Form

We discussed the AIR judging form in detail in Chapter 10. Here we’ll just remind you that the form contains a number of different sections, with a different number of items in each one—and a different scoring system. We used <fieldset> and <legend> elements to define the various sections, and we decided to use pull-down menus (<select> and <option> elements) so that judges wouldn’t have to remember how many points to assign in a given instance.
