  • Specify the expansion of each abbreviation or acronym in a document where it first occurs
  • Do not use tables for layout unless the table makes sense when liberalized
  • Organize documents so they may be read without style sheets
  • Ensure that pages are usable when scripts, applets, or other programmatic objects are turned off or not supported
