You already know that accessibility is important. In fact, it's the law. It's also a good idea. Let's make the Web accessible--and faster--for everyone.

Estelle Weyl skips the "why" and focuses on the "how." Marking up accessible, performant websites can be as simple as using the right semantic elements in your HTML.
