Could an "HTML-to-other-format" translator be considered as an AT? I know 
some HTML-to-other-format translators that could fail with Chris example 
because of the <stuff> tag.

An what about Web wrappers that scratch selected information? They could 
be used not only for disabled people but for ANYBODY. I remind that WAI is 
not only for disabled people. WAI is for all of us! Such Web wrappers (I 
have developed some) usually find non valid tags as barriers.

Cheers.
