Design for Device Independence

Web sites should not be designed to require a specific type of device, such as a mouse. Designing for device independence helps "power users" who are faster with keyboard shortcuts, people who need to limit mouse use due to repetitive stress injuries (RSI), and people who use mobile phones and other devices without a mouse. A user may also interact with a Web site by voice or head wand.
