Can somebody tell Jared Smith of WebAIM that the “notes” to his presentation entitled “User-Centered, Standards-Driven Accessibility,” having been published in untagged PDF and in “HTML,” are neither user-centred, standards-driven, nor accessible?

And it gets worse: The “notes” are a prototypical Tufte-noncompliant misuse of presentation software (in this case Keynote), and the HTML is so crappy it disables the Back button. Smith has delivered a cautionary tale in the guise of advice.
