It is crucial to plan in details a site and its future maintainability, structuring information and, at the same time, it's important to write pages in a way suitable by assistive technologies used by people with disabilities, which represent a significant percentage of the users. Aim of this paper is to analyze specific solutions we have adopted to improve the Web site of the Institute of Information Science and Technologies ( http://www.isti.cnr.it/ ), an institute of the National Research Council (ISTI-CNR), in terms of accessibility and usability, like ordered lists for adjacent links, heading levels and hidden labels, automatic assignment of tabbing order.
