woo hoo! rapid response team, thank you!!

We are officially cleared for take off, Eric please publish How People with
Disabilities Use the Web.  Since it is a revision to an existing resource,
I am not sure if official announcements are in order, but we should
certainly let EO know about it and have spirits lifted by this progress.

Thank you again Norah and Eric -  you have made my holidays merrier for
sure!

Best,
Sharron
