Visual Vs. Structural
1st Aug 2006
Tommy Olsson has written a great article (at Accesites.org) which tries to define the two approaches a web designer may take when coming up with a web page design. It's a very interesting subject which I have often considered myself previously.
Early on in my web design life (when I didn't know better) I wouldn't have given semantics a second thought. Having said that I wouldn't say the structure of a document is my foremost concern; of course my web pages are always meaningfully structured and ordered but my first aim is to balance usability and accessibility with great design (;-P) - which suggests I might fall somewhere inbetween?
