    Thanks for posting the link. I’ve always used text in menus and headings rather than graphics so that the font size can be made bigger etc. Its interesting that understandability should fall into the official recommendation for web accessibility for the disabled. Its really a benefit for every internet user, is it not? I know Google has been working to weed out machine generated garbage sites using algorithms that detect wether a page makes sense or not. But I’m sure they have a long way to go on that front!
    Thanks again
