Editor's Choice: MAKING PDF'S ACCESSIBLE
An excellent tutorial from WebAccessibilityInMind on accessibility for PDFs - detailed information regarding how to use Adobe 7.0 to make tags and Adobe 7.0 Professional to modify tags. The tutorial warns of pitfalls and failings in the Adobe tagging process, and how to get around them. The tutorial first outlines different
disabilities and approaches to accessibility. It also offers general concerns about accessibility using easy "convert to html" tools, which create unnecessary html code.

SECTION 508 WEB ACCESSIBILITY STANDARDS FOR HTML
This detailed check list provides key information for meeting accessibility standards in the United States, at the same time providing an example of an appropriately tagged PDF file so that the PDF file is fully accessible. A "pass" or "fail" listing is provided for each component of Section 508, helping web designers know if they
are appropriately complying with accessibility criteria. The notes section helps readers avoid common traps when addressing accessibility. (Section 508 requires that United States Federal agencies' electronic and information technology is accessible to people with disabilities.)

2. SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION

11 SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION TIPS
This article gives helpful hints to improve search engine results for your site. In addition to examining tags - the importance of title, description, and alt tags - the article examines other website design elements such as frames or Java that can limit search engines' ability to index your site.

SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION AND SPAM DISCUSSION
Though geared to consultants, the information in this article is helpful to understand key principles around Search Engine Optimization (SEO). In addition to giving the basic guidelines common in SEO articles, it explains "players", "processes" and
"methodology", so that one can see how different tips might work in different ways. It also clearly spells out spam practices and how sites might get de-indexed unintentionally due to what different search engines perceive as spam.

3. COMPRESSING FILES AND URLS

HOW TO DEAL WITH DOWNLOADS .ZIP
This helpful article not only tells you about compressed files, it gives you a good downloading and unzipping strategy to be able to manage your zip files more effectively and scan them for viruses.

DIGBIG AND TINYURL
Long URLs included in e-mail messages may break across lines and cease to be "clickable" links, forcing users to copy and paste each line into their browsers. DigBig and TinyURL are free online tools which produce short versions of URLs which can easily be used in e-mail messages and other contexts where a short URL is important.
