Re: Accessibility of complex HTML forms

Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

I have to say though that I like Peter-Paul Koch's solution the best. That
said though, his work around for accessibility or rather for the lack of
JavaScript seems like it would only work in some situations.

Is it a given that disabled users turn JavaScript off?

Would it be reasonable to warn a disabled user that the form is dynamic and
uses JavaScript but is accessible if JavaScript is turned off?

This way one could provide a solution which in a sense covers both
Peter-Paul Koch's solution (dyanamic form only showing relevant fields) as
well as Terence and Jukka's solution (show all forms with added instructions
to answer only particular questions).
