Why a Webinar series on columns and tables? What's so difficult about these?
Because these seem simple, many people do not take care to design them
properly. While half-way decent-looking columns and tables can be made
easily, to be sure of their accessibility, authors will benefit from a
glimpse into how assistive technologies handle these features.
Again, because even making columns and tables with correct document markup
for Word, for PDF and for HTML is relatively simple to do...not requiring a
lot of technical skill and not a lot of effort, people frequently rush
ahead and forget a few simple markup features that make a big difference.
