Priority 3 Guidelines

1.5 Until user agents render text equivalents for client-side image map links, provide redundant text links for each active region of a client-side image map.

2.2 Ensure that foreground and background colour combinations provide sufficient contrast when viewed by someone having colour deficits or when viewed on a black and white screen. [Priority 2 for images, Priority 3 for text].

9.5 Provide keyboard shortcuts to important links (including those in client-side image maps), form controls, and groups of form controls.

10.3 Until user agents (including assistive technologies) render side-by-side text correctly, provide a linear text alternative (on the current page or some other) for all tables that lay out text in parallel, word-wrapped columns.

10.4 Until user agents handle empty controls correctly, include default, place-holding characters in edit boxes and text areas.
