One of the things that irritate me about the current site and more
obviously with the new example home page is the content do not
follow or better stated it is created against any Web accessibility
standards.

The most stare point: the fonts and font sizes. Please don't bother
styling the font for the main text (e.g. paragraphs, etc.) so it
would be my preferred and most comfortable one, and specify font
sizes for other elements like headings, smaller notes with relative
units. Currently the new example home page defaults to 11px size
font, which is about 7pt size and which is so damn tiny.

On the new example home page, the document markup is far from
perfect: nested tables all over the place.

For these and many other web content accessibility issues please
refer to the "comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html" and
"comp.infosystems.www.authoring.stylesheets" groups. There are even
published guidelines from the W3C:

http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10/

For even more info check the W3C "Web Accessibility Initiative" site
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/>.
