🏳️‍🌈 Inclusivity and HTML

It’s June tomorrow, which means the beginning of Pride Month; a time to celebrate how far we’ve come with civil rights, but a reminder that we still have a long way to go. Not Pride related, but definitely about inclusivity, here are the articles I wrote for you in May:

  1. Sometimes when it’s false, it’s true
  2. Booleans in ARIA
  3. XHTML syntax is still worth using

From the archives

HTML is great. ARIA can be handy too. But it bears repeating that semantic HTML does almost all the accessibility heavy lifting without a single ARIA attribute or line of JavaScript. Last year, I wrote about the case of a bunch of unnecessary code being used on a href-less <a> element, where just adding the href attribute would have done all that work automatically.

Elsewhere on the web

Here are some more interesting articles from around the web that I read during May:

Anyway, I hope you manage to get out and join your local Pride celebrations! See you again at the end of June 🌈
