This is not a new issue with out parallel.  We have special symbols
all over the place for just such accommodations.  am I missing
something here?  Has not Anne Pemberton spoken of similar topics on
this vary list?

This could actually provide web sites with a wider audience
demographically.  instead of starting to use the web at say 6 or 7,
kids could begin using it before learning to read.

a tool like:
t o m at:
http://lunch.ncsa.uiuc.edu/tom/tom.html

could be devised to make pages cooperate by removing excessive text.
