One area that's so hard to get right is the navigation of a site. It's always where I -
a) have to think the longest, and
b) struggle the most
I don't know if posting or urls is allowed in this forum but if they are can people please post some examples of sites where you think they've got the Navigation working well.
However, if you'd like to find out about accessible nav, check out CSS-styled lists, sliding doors, etc. Using CSS to create menus allows you to A) give the impression of styled, graphic content while actually having text, or B) display image links that revert to text when only text-browsers are used.
There are examples all over the web... dive in.
As Don_Hoagie said - 'sliding doors' is a good search term for usable tabs
There are some threads in the library that take an in-depth look at these issues:
