Again - "lacking the technical vocabulary"

Thought headings (semantic structure) were a part of CSS...crawling under a rock now

I'm not following the CSS angle. The majority of accessibility comes from semantic HTML elements. *Some* accessibility comes from CSS, such as color choices or the "display" property.

What makes you think CSS is more accessible than HTML? That's not a facetious question. I'm genuinely curious what you've heard and from where.
