First is it okay to bring up issues that were discussed on the wiki that is still in the web and websoft committee? If yes...
I've been looking through the wiki and couldn't tell if the discuss regarding the current requirement of skip navigation ended up including some type of structured navigation included in the draft.
22(o) A method shall be provided that permits users to skip repetitive navigation links.
I would definitely like to see this particular wording include structured navigation using H tags to group navigation elements and unordered or order lists. So many front pages today have many, many links... some in the 100s. A person with speech needs to read them when folks code for the sighted users only. But pages like the empowerment zone, has the same large group (don't think they user list format) and yet I was pointed to it by speech users that found it navigatable. At this point I'm redoing my site using style sheets and have only a small global menu and a local menu with the look and feel of buttons. It was easy for me to use a "hidden" H 2 class for the local menu.
A method shall be provided that permits users to skip repetitive navigation links. Navigation elements should be established using order or unordered lists. When there are more than X links on a page, navigation elements should be coded using h tags.
I'm not sure if the order and unordered list helps speech users. But I believe it would make it easier to test a site. Maybe not, cause I use order and unordered list for other things as well.
