Chapter 3. Expandable Rows > Why It's Not Bulletproof

Why It's Not Bulletproof

We can make several improvements to the construction of these horizontal rows—improvements that will enhance this section's flexibility. Let's outline what's wrong so that we can gain a better understanding of what we'll need to bulletproof in this design.

NONESSENTIAL GRAPHICS

As we discovered earlier, the rows are built using a series of nested tables, with each section of the row surrounded by its own table cell. Nonessential graphics, such as the rounded ends, are placed in the markup alongside the text. These graphics will just get in the way of someone trying to access this site via a text browser or screen reader. Assigning the proper alt attribute values to the images would certainly help, although The Best Store Ever chose to omit those useful bits of information.
