Accessibility tip 13: Give your calendar a caption

OK, now it’s getting serious. Captions on the calendar, no less. Making Mark Pilgrim’s code change took little more than a minute (courtesy of Movable Type). “It’s easier to read in your template, saves a few bytes in your page, looks exactly the same in visual browsers, and is more accessible.” And it does “look exactly the same as it did before”—dark red and bold—because Mark included the class="calendarhead" style I’d already defined in my style sheet. We’re not done with the calendar, though; there’s more promised for tomorrow.
