  • Navigation menus are marked up as HTML lists and styled with CSS.
  • Many links have title attributes, which describe the link in greater detail.
  • Links are written so as to make sense out of context.
  • Some links, mostly to downloadable files such as PDFs, open a new browser window.
  • Forms have their labels explicitly associated with their controls, aiding users of certain screen readers and speech browsers.
