Cross-browser means websites look good with all versions of all browsers. For March 2009 according to Onestat.com (provider of real-time intelligence web analytics) the global usage share of Internet Explorer - 79.79%, Mozilla Firefox - 15.59%, Apple Safari - 2.65%, Google Chrome - 0.86%, Opera - 0.54%, Netscape - 0.31%.

SEO semantic coding improves how easily search engine crawlers can detect the meaning of your web page. When a search engine spider visits your web page to index it, it generally extracts the text from the code so it knows which parts of your web page are readable to humans.

Accessibility Guidelines

Accessibility refers primarily to the technical ability of users to access and move through your site, as well as the ability of the site to serve disabled or impaired users. For SEO purposes, the most important aspects are limiting code errors to a minimum and fixing broken links, making sure that content is accessible and visible in all browsers and without special actions.
