Quick Tip: Large Clickable Targets
Some mouse users have may have difficulty with fine motor control, so it is important that clickable targets be sufficiently large.

Small icons or text, such as previous/next arrows or superscript links for footnotes, should be sufficiently large or combined with adjacent text into a single link.
