Hi,

Roger Hudson published a short article on WCAG 2.0 adoption by 
governments around the world:
<http://www.dingoaccess.com/accessibility/adopting-wcag-2/>.
(The list is not supposed to exhaustive or authoritative.)
One of the countries listed is New Zealand. Its most recent version 
of the Government Web Standards states that: "Information or services 
in webpages or applications must be available without scripts, 
applets and other programmatic objects. This includes Flash, 
Silverlight, Java and Javascript," and "Do not provide content in 
document formats other than HTML (such as PDF, RTF, Word, Flash, etc) 
except when...".
For more details, see <http://www.webstandards.govt.nz/technical/>.

Best regards,

Christophe
