*Using emboldening and italics to differentiate types on, e.g. the cheatsheet pages [[hcard-cheatsheet]], is unhelpful to users of assistive technologies, text-only devices, etc. A number, letter or symbol should additionally be be used. [[User:AndyMabbett|Andy Mabbett]] 14:33, 26 Nov 2006 (PST)

**I think the emboldening is fine as it marks up the required properties. The italics are a bit of a problem but keep it simple at the moment. Additional characters can’t be used as they would break the class="property" template. Colours would be a way but are inaccessible to some users, so there is no real solution to that problem for now.
