A quick look at Gmail in Fangs shows a table based layout, primarily
generated by javascript. Icons lack the alt attribute. User
interaction requires javascript and updates occur without reloading
the page.

There is, however, a "basic html" version of Gmail which may work
better in some cases. It still has a table based layout but page
updates seem to work in pre web 2.0 way.
