Click an item to highlight corresponding page components. CommonSpot supports the eight landmark roles for content regions currently defined by the ARIA standard.

It is generally agreed that using this method to organize content requires placing all content in landmark regions to prevent orphaning. For this reason, it's best to create landmarks at the template level so that roles consistently apply to multiple pages. Add ARIA landmarks to pages through Container Layout Properties (see the description of this dialog under "Container Element" in the Elements Reference for details).

For both general and CommonSpot-specific information on using landmarks to improve accessibility, see Developing Accessible Content in CommonSpot in the Administrator's Reference.
