I think Jim Thacher is right. I just went and had a look at the project
seven home page,

Considering Al's critique of my home page and having viewed his from the
perspective of someone limited to keyboard access. It is my opinion that
Al has overlooked a key element in making a page/menu accessible, logic.

My brief tour of http://www.projectseven.com
It took 31 (thirty one) tabs to get to the first menu item (there is no
skip to navigation). To get from the third item "Products" to the fourth
item "Support and Info" took 28 (twenty eight) tabs.

Al started this thread to defend his menu system because of something Jim
Thatcher said. I am at a loss to see what there is to defend.
