Avoid fixing font sizes - so it's easy for people to enlarge text using most browsers.
Use something like Arial or Verdana - avoid Times and the like.
Make hyperlinks meaningful i.e. "Click Here for the IGDA's web-site" should be avoided - "The IGDA web-site" would be better - especially for people tabbing around and/or using screen readers.
Avoid overly cluttered screens.
Avoid frames (scrollable windows within windows). Can beconfusing.
I'm no expert - but I think the above helps too.
