Re: Z-Order and Tag Order Need to Match?

Who is saying it's absolutely necessary? I can see how it might cause accessibility issues when the layout of pages change as they are zoomed, but it's by no means inevitable.

That said, I tend to regard the presence of "z-index" attributes as a warning that there might be other nastiness because it suggests the design is fundamentally flawed. It's the same as when you see positive "tabindex" attributes.

Subject: [WebAIM] Z-Order and Tag Order Need to Match?

Can the group weigh in on the latest techniques and efficacy regarding Z-Order and Tag Order having to match and why this would be absolutely necessary for Accessibility?

I'm having many discussions with government 508 officers going around in circles regarding this issue.

Any info is appreciated.
