  • “This site is a resource to provide information about which new HTML5 user interface features are accessibility supported in browsers, making them usable by people who rely upon assistive technology (AT) to use the web.

    It is not intended to dissuade developers from using new HTML5 features. Sometimes there are better choices, sometimes developers have to add a little extra to make the feature useful or usable, and other times features have simply not been implemented by any browser or only by browsers that do not yet support assistive technologies. As a consequence it may not yet be practical to use a particular HTML5 feature. Example work arounds for lack of implementation or lack of accessible implementation are linked from the Solutions page.

    The information in the support table will be updated on a regular basis, to keep up with support improvements made in browsers as new versions are released.”

  • There are many other editors, some being quite excellent. There is no reason why you cannot use one of them, however, there are some advantages in using VIM. Likewise none of these reasons are unique to VIM.

    With the sudden rise in Unix use (Linux and Mac OS X, in particular) the text editor known as VIM (“vi improved”) has become ubiquitous
    Vim has a small footprint in RAM and on the CPU. A given system can support a great many VIM users at once.
    Vim has a lot of “superpowers”, which make editing quite efficient.
    Vim has “geek appeal”.
    Vim has a very active user/developer community. It always has.
