One I hadn't thought of was mentioned to me by a blind person not
long ago:

Text-only browsers render tables and frames from top to bottom and
left to right.  A left-side nav bar forces the blind person to wade
through all the navigation stuff before getting to the page content.

It may or not make a difference to sighted users, but it really
makes a difference to blind users.


P.S.  Remember to put an ALT tag on 1-pixel spacer graphics too.
