WCAG 2: Remember P.O.U.R.: Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, Robust
- Perceivable – Interface elements can not be invisible to users.
- Operable – Users must be able to interact with the interface.
- Understandable – Users must be able to understand with information and the interface (cognitive).
- Robust – Must be usable by a wide range of user agents and assisstive technologies.

- blockquotes for quotes (not indentation).
- Use lists for lists, menus, etcetera.
- Definition Lists.
- Use strong and em tags versus b and i.
