	#ABCDEFGHIJLMOPSTUWXAccessibilityThe basis of accessibility is that
every Web user should have access to the information and experiences
available online. The nature of the Web and the tools used to create
and access the information it offers means that some users, for
instance, those with visual, auditory, or other physical impairment,
have difficulty accessing Web content. The tenets and practice of the
accessible Web aim to ensure these users' impairments do not prevent
them from finding the Web a valuable resource, and that they have
access to the same content that other visitors
enjoy.AccesskeysAccesskeys are a means by which Web users can jump
immediately to a specific part of an HTML page. Users press ALT (PC)
or CTRL (Mac), followed by the appropriate key on the keyboard, to
access a particular part of the page. The developer defines which
accesskeys apply to each part of the page using an accesskey
parameter.ActionScriptActionScript is Adobe Flash's own embedded
scripting language. It has a JavaScript like structure and has
developed into a flexible and powerful platform for Flash games and
interactive multimedia.ADO.NETADO.NET stands for ActiveX Data Objects
for .NET. It refers to the suite of data access technologies used to
manipulate databases. ADO.NET is part of the .NET Framework. AJAXAJAX
stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. It's a development
technique  that mixes (X)HTML, JavaScript, CSS, DOM, XML and XSLT to
create interactive Web applications.AndroidAndroid is a software
platform and operating system for mobile devices, based on the Linux
kernel, developed by Google and later the Open Handset
Alliance.ApacheApache is one of the the world's most widely used Web
servers. Originally developed in 1995 by a group that was to go on to
become the The Apache Group, the Apache HTTP Server is Open Source
Software, and considered by proponents to be fast, scalable and
secure.

The name was derived from the project's less robust beginnings ('A
patchy Web server'). arrayAn array is a single programming variable
with multiple "compartments". Each compartment can hold a value.
