What does it take to change the urban environment to provide the necessary infrastructure for an open navigation system for the blind and visually impaired?

In the first two articles of this series, we compared CSS and SVG techniques for creating graphical text effects and ways to style (and animate) HTML checkboxes and radio buttons, respectively.
