" make sure that stuff out there can be accessed by everyone in a reasonable fashion"
Semantic markup is one of the biggest steps you can take to make this happen.

sometimes I wonder what the mission of some of you is:
- force everybody in the world to use a certain style you like, e.g. a coding style that's fresh, modern, elegant, .? What gives you the right to do so, or to bad-mouth styles you do not like?
- make sure that stuff out there can be accessed by everyone in a reasonable fashion
I can't see why a style that is 'gross' hinders equal access.
And: from a stylistic point of view, I find a substantial portion of accessible web sites highly awful. While I think it's OK for me to have that opinion, it is nothing that would or should be discussed on this discussion list (so if you wish to discuss **this** get in touch with me privately ;-) ).
