The Road To Resilient Web Design – Smashing Magazine
The primary design principle underlying the Web’s usefulness and growth is universality. The Web should be usable by people with disabilities. It must work with any form of information, be it a document or a point of data, and information of any quality — from a silly tweet to a scholarly paper. And it should be accessible from any kind of hardware that can connect to the Internet: stationary or mobile, small screen or large.

GDS design principles
We should be simple and clear in all our communications. Visual metaphors which are overused tend to hinder communication rather than help it. For that reason lightbulbs, brains, jigsaws, cheetahs, chameleons and butterflies are all banned.

Back to Basics: Skip to Main Content Links | Terrill Thompson
In summary, either a named anchor or an id will work as a target in Firefox and IE, but the target also needs tabindex="0" or IE doesn't give it focus. And nothing you do with HTML alone will work for keyboard users in Chrome, Safari, or Opera.

Easy color contrast ratios | Lea Verou
I used to think that WCAG-mandated contrast ratios were too restrictive and basically tried to force you to use black and white, a sentiment shared by many designers I’ve spoken to. Surprisingly, in practice, I found that in most cases they are very reasonable: When a color combination doesn’t pass WCAG, it usually *is* hard to read.
