Hi Shadi,

I propose we drop Dr. Watson <http://watson.addy.com/> from the list of 
accessibility tools. The reasons are manifold:

- It is not an accessibility tool: it does not do any accessibility check.
- It is buggy and obsolete: it complains about lowercase HTML elements, 
and reports XHTML documents as being erroneous.

regards,
carlos
