Oz-IA2008 will be held on 20/21 September. Oz-IA is the premier Australian event on Information Architecture for the web. Two incredible days of presentations, panels, and networking with information architects from across Australia and beyond.
I’ll be running a half-day workshop as part of the conference:
Forms are possibly the hardest aspect of page layouts to style. This workshop will outline how to take WCAG 2.0 compliant forms and lay them out them using CSS.
Participants will learn:
- An overview of CSS basics such as rule sets, selectors and floats
- How to style elements such as form, legend, fieldset, inputs, labels
- How to overcome some of the harder aspects of form styling such as column layouts, floating in forms and positioning legends
The CSS workshop will run directly after the accessibility workshop, run by Roger Hudson – so you can learn how to use WCAG2 accessible markup for forms, and then how to style the same forms.
Accessible forms with WCAG 2.0
Half Day Workshop
Thursday 18th September, 8.30am-12.30pm
When it comes to forms, WCAG 2.0 offers considerable accessibility benefits. This workshop will outline how to make WCAG 2.0 compliant forms that are more accessible and usable for everyone.
