Okay, we've got the likes of Dan Shafer saying that "there are strong,
selfish advantages to be gained by making your site accessible".  Kynn has
done great work with the AWARE site.  Part of that work is the argument
"Why Accessibility?" at URL:
http://aware.hwg.org/why/
but even this great resource does not connect all the dots for me...

There has been plenty of discussion among us, the choir if you will,
preaching that universal design means that not only will pages be
accessible to screen readers, but that sites will be better utilized by
search engines, web crawlers, PIMs, PDAs, cell phones, AIs, space aliens,
etc., etc.

What are the URLs for some simple/clear/short documents that make the
argument for the strong, selfish, capitalistic advantages of universal
design of HTML?

Thank you.
