Web Design for the Sighted and the Blind

This is a set of short pages dealing with web design in general and for the blind and print disabled in particular. I approach this topic from the point of view that good web and graphic design best serves the needs of both the sighted as well as the blind reader of web pages. Also that web pages intended for, or developed by, the blind should pay particular attention to the visual appearance of the page lest we reenforce negative stereotypes of the blind as persons who either unable, or unwilling, to pay proper attention to the visual aspects of page design.
