hr.hrpost :

This below is from a 2005 test page but most of it still works 🙂

Ackadia v7.1 – XHTML 1.1 template (h1)

h2 – The basic text settings used

h3, that’s me

h4, wouldn’t you guess

Validate me for/with:

I am regular text

I am regular text in a paragraph – in element ‘p’ (indent 15 pixels)

‘P’ of class indent25

‘P’ of class indent50

‘P’ of class indent75

‘P’ of class indent100

I am element ‘strong’

I am element ’em’

I am element ‘acronym’ – (But now obsolete, use ABBR instead)

I am a typical image: Smiley Smile!

I am a typical link: World of Quotes

I am a quote: I am element ‘q’

I am a quote, by us: I am element ‘q’, of class ‘qme’

I am a citation for the above quote: I am element ‘cite’

I am a large block of text for a cited quotation.

Element ‘blockquote’

Note: block elements like ‘p’ or ‘div’ may still be required.

Blockquotes are for just that and should include a link reference in the element tag (where appropriate) and at the bottom of the quoted entry.

Paul Ackerley

I am a superscript: I am element ‘sup’

I am a subscript: I am element ‘sub’

I am element ‘dt’, Definition Term
I am element ‘dd’, definition term

The terms must be bound with element ‘dl’ – definition list

Accessibility testing observation

This is a valid ‘anchor’ for XHTML 1.0 traditional:

<a id=”top” name=”top”></a>

The name=”top” is part is acceptable for backwards compatibility. However, it is NOT valid for XHTML 1.1, here you must simply it, thus:

<a id=”top”></a>

Quoting CSE HTML Validator, from the W3C rules:

[79] In XHTML 1.1, the “name” attribute has been removed from the “a” and “map” elements in favor of the “id” attribute.


[80] The following attributes may not be used with the “a” element in an XHTML 1.1 document: “name” and “target”.

Webfire Exact (Bobby) does not appear to be able to distinguish between a valid link (a href=””) and a valid anchor (a id=””). This, I believe, is a flaw in their software so I, for one, am going to ignore it as being erroneous.

Quote from the test:   13.1 Create link phrases that make sense when read out of context.

This points you to WAI checkpoint 13.1, which reads:

Create link phrases that make sense when read out of context
Authors should not use phrases like “click here” as link text; this requires a user browsing the page with a screen reader to step through each link and read the surrounding text to determine the purpose of the link. Instead, link text should carry sufficient information, as in “download this document in ASCII text,” “view the full version in HTML,” or “for the text version select this link.”

Visually impaired users often jump from link to link when skimming a page or looking for information. When they do this, only the text of the link (“link text”) is read, not the surrounding text. Therefore, it is important that link text make sense when not contextualized by the text around it.


Customs classes

I am class ‘.small’
‘.small-r’ and ‘.small-c’ offer right and center alignment to text.

Class ‘.acenter’ is the real centering call

I am class ‘.bold’ used when we want more that just ‘strong’

I am class ‘.aeg’ used when we want a certain type of highlighting

I am class ‘.ftt’ used instead of the old ‘tt’ element.
I am used to shown code examples mostly

I am class ‘.falselink’ I am really annoying and am here to prove a point

I am class ‘cmessage’, used in the footer


Tables should really be avoided like the plague, but they do have their uses so I’ve included one for completeness.

1 Paper
2 Cotton
3 Leather
4 Linen
5 Wood

Notes on tables:

  • If this table is used for layout only, do not use structural markup to achieve formatting effects.
  • If this is a data table (not used for layout only), provide a caption.
    ( The ‘caption’ element goes in right after the <table> )
  • Remember to use thead and tbody elements as appropriate
  • on accessible tables

Moving up to xhtml, there’s a number of rules to obey, if you want valid code.

These include…

Breaks – <br /> – must be within block elements such as paragraphs and divisions


Moving up to xhtml, there’s a number of obsolete elements to avoid if you want valid code.

These include…

‘Strike’ – use { text-decoration: line-through; } in CSS instead.

‘Pre’ – avoid it like the plague, for accessibility reasons


Moving up to xhtml, there’s a number of rules to obey, elements to avoid if you want valid code.

They are all valid HTML 4.01 and XHTML elements, but, for your awareness, the older (long obsolete) may now support them. These include…

Span, label, acronym, q, legend, fieldset and table
