I see there's a plan for SE to change the way the accepted answer is displayed.
At the moment, the AA is the first answer you see in the list, unless you've gone and changed the sort order which 99% of readers don't do.
The planned alternative is to display all answers sorted specifically on vote score.

Most questions won't noticeably change, but an example post where this matters: Is it safe to cut off from the inside of my helmet?
The accepted answer has a score of -2 and the best answer has +10.
