Visual Design

The pages within National Alliance for Accessible Golf use simple HTML tables for layout in order to display consistently across browsers and platforms. Cascading style sheets are used for all other visual effects. If your browser or browsing device does not support style sheets at all, the content of each page should still be readable.

Text Size

This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified “text size” option in visual browsers. You can also use the “Text size” buttons featured on every page of this site to make the text bigger or smaller.

Access Keys

Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site. On Windows, you can press ALT + an access key; on Macintosh, you can press Control + an access key. All pages on this site define the following access keys:

Access key 1 – Home page
Access key 2 – Skip to content
Access key 3 – Skip to navigation
Access key 4 – Search
Access key 0 – Accessibility statement

Navigation Aids

All pages have rel=home, contents, and help links to aid navigation in text-only browsers. Netscape 6 and Mozilla users can also take advantage of this feature by selecting the View menu, Show/Hide, Site Navigation Bar, Show Only As Needed (or Show Always).


Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target. Links are written to make sense out of context.
