Accessibility Checkpoint CSS position: causes meaningless sequence


CSS positioning can make pages unreadable when style sheets are turned off.


Low vision users often switch off style sheets to make text easier to read. Absolute positioning can result in pages that display text out-of-order when style sheets are turned off.

Applicable standards

Note: Section 508 (2000) checkpoints (a) through (k) are equivalent to WCAG 1.0 level A checkpoints. Section 508 Refresh (2017) checkpoints are equivalent to WCAG 2.0 level AA checkpoints.
