Accessible NCAA Bracket 2010

Hi All,

With 16 hours to spare before the Round 1 games begin, I've just updated the Accessible NCAA Tournament Bracket:

I've done this for the past several years - created a bracket that uses good HTML structure to help screen reader users to navigate between regions and rounds, stylized with CSS so it looks like a bracket to sighted users. This year for the first time, I've also included an accessible tournament pool application, so screen reader users (and anyone else who's interested) can independently fill out a bracket and play along (for bragging rights only, of course!)

If you want to participate in the pool, you have to sign up and fill out a bracket before the Round 1 games start tomorrow Wednesday at 12:30pm Eastern. All the other features will be available throughout the tournament.

Please spread the word to anyone you think might be interested. As always I'm open to feedback about how to improve the accessibility and usability of this application.
