CSS Generator

Many web users could benefit from viewing properly coded websites according to the styles set by themselves rather than the web designer. This is very easy with an accessible website, because all the style is in the DocumentCSS - the Cascading Style Sheet drawn in by the HTML file. With a few simple clicks in their browser they can replace the DocumentCSS with their own UserCSS to view accessible websites in the style that they choose - be that with large blue text on a yellow background, or any other combination suited to their particular dyslexia, colour blindness, or visual impairment.

fourquarters are proud to announce the first version of a free Personal Style Sheet Generator now online at Follow the simple instructions to create your own "UserCSS " file.

Try it for your self - and please - give feedback, so that v2 can be even better!

Many thanks

Next Event Tuesday 11th October

We'll all be meeting again at the MDDA in the centre of Manchester.

Dr David Kreps of Fourquarters will deliver a presentation on Accessible Data Tables:
"A look at Tables, examining what the WCAG actually says about tables, what linearisation is, the difference between layout and data tables, what structural markup is, how to make simple accessible tables, how to make complex accessible tables, and some hints toward making attractive tables. Hopefully room for plenty of discussion, as usual."
Nominated pub is the Pitcher and Piano.

If you would like to attend, please mail Simon Wharton at
