HTML 5 and Accessibility

HTML 5 is under development, and I thought I’d point out some proposed changes that directly affect accessibility, namely, the removal of certain attributes:

  • accesskey attribute on a, area, button, input, label, legend and textarea
  • longdesc attribute on img and iframe
  • target attribute on link
  • summary attribute on table
  • headers, axis and abbr attributes on td and th
  • scope attribute on td

You may use the following HTML:
<a href="" title=""> <abbr title=""> <acronym title=""> <b> <blockquote cite=""> <cite> <code> <del datetime=""> <em> <i> <q cite=""> <s> <strike> <strong>
