W3C Letter Regarding US Copyright Office Proposal

  W3C has written to the US Copyright Office regarding a notice of
  proposed rulemaking. The notice asks if persons filing electronic-only
  preregistration forms will experience difficulties if the Office
  requires them to use Microsoft's Internet Explorer Web browser. W3C
  comments to the Copyright Office suggest that requiring a single
  browser is inappropriate for government services and encourages the
  Office to pursue standards-based access in accordance with US Federal
  policy. Read W3C's letter and about W3C.

  accessibility. It is designed to help organizations develop their own
  customized business case for Web accessibility. It provides text that
  can be used as is, as well as guidance on identifying the most relevant
  factors for a specific organization. Visit the WAI home page for more
