The following PDF files include resources for creating accessible content in Word 2007. For maximum accessibility, consider saving the file in PDF format, where headings, captions, and alt-tags will be preserved.

Check out Useful Websites and Downloads for more information about free HTML editors and the General Tips section for, well, general tips--ha!
