New to A11y?
I confess to sharing a lot of links about writing better HTML in this space. It’s a bit of an obsession. I may enjoy HTML more than your average web worker. We have to dive into a lot these days. Yes, spend time on the frameworks and tools when you need to do so. But don’t ignore the fundamentals. All that to say that Eric Eggert’s post about buttons vs. links lays out some of those fundamentals that you shouldn’t ignore.
