Overall the examples keep the promise the book makes in that they are creative, standards compliant and up-to-date, but there is just a little bit too much inaccessible image replacement going on for my taste. Not a huge problem, but I would have liked to see at least one example of image replacement that has a fallback for when images aren’t available, or at least a mention of the issue to make the reader aware of it.

  1. So, what’s the ‘to-do’ here – document an accessible image replacement method or buy a copy of the book?

    BTW, Wendy, I tried mailing you the other day but realise that I have a hideously out-of-date address for you (W3C addy!). Can you drop me a line at lloydi AT same domain .com? Thanks

    For info, I was going to mail you this:

    Bye for now!

  2. heh. I was daydreaming about writing a book, playing with clipmarks, and wanting to keep his comment in my train of thought. As for buying it, it’s on my wish list.

    Great video! Educating users is way overdue.
