I don't -think- so.  I wish there were, but I unfortunately have
neither the time nor the programming skill to implement it.

And of course, until some browsers start SENDING CC/PP profiles, it
is not of much use -- yet.  So the call goes out to unite behind
CC/PP, talk it up, raise the profile, get people interested!

I was on the CC/PP working group at one time, exactly because of
the accessibility implications, and I have high hopes for such an
aid to adapting content.  I just wish that we could get it in the
spotlight more and get some progress going on it!


PS:  Reef has plans, in the future, to include a CC/PP implementation
      in our Reef EveryWare software -- but that is probably a year
      off, at least.

PS2:  I have started a dialogue with some of the people at Reef
       responsible for our web site and hope to see some changes;
       I won't guarantee that they'll be all that _I_ want, but
       hopefully we can make it better.
