[PATCH] accessibility of Ant documentation

           Summary: [PATCH] accessibility of Ant documentation
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: david.konecny@volny.cz


In NetBeans project we are generating Java help from your Ant documentation and
because the NetBeans IDE is "accessible" (can be used by disabled people) the
help pages must be accessible as well. To make help files accessible means that
screen-readers which disabled people uses are capable to read page for the user.
In practice it means:
* all images must have <alt> tag
* all tables must have <th> tag and scope attribute must be set to "col"
* there should not be any hardcoded colors so that color-blind people can use
their own CSS

We are doing changes like this after each major Ant release. I'm attaching diff
with all the changes. It is up to you to consider to apply these changes. It
does not change documentation visually (apart from two details -
antexternal.html and optionalTasks/setproxy.html were modified to do not use
tables) and gives you something what you can use/need in future. For us it will
be of course easier in future if you accept the patch, because we will have less
work.

I'm just submitting the patch. Actual work was done by
<john.jullion-ceccarelli@sun.com>. The patch was generated against the
ANT_151_FINAL branch.

Thank you for considering this.
