Finishing Up

There is more to the layout than can be covered in one chapter—even a big fat chapter like this one. There are accessibility enhancements made to form elements, including the Search form. There are our old pals Skip Navigation, tabindex, and accesskey. There's the design of a style-switching widget (visible in the center of Figure 16.10) and the code it rides in on, taken from the open source A List Apart style switcher discussed in Chapter 15, “Working with DOM-Based Scripts.” There is the need to actually create an alternate style [16.11], which largely, although not exclusively, consists of changing color values. And there are details like the “Externals” sidebar [16.12], which is hidden from view until the visitor decides to open it.

16.11. The alternate (“orange”) takes shape.
