 Pretty Web Pages Can Be Very Ugly To the Disabled

                                   [LINK]      

That [LINK] is an image missing ALT text; the image actually
says "San Fransico Chronicle -- Chronicle Sections".  (Oh, the
Irony!)

But it's a good article anyway, although I worry about what effect
strongly worded language such as Jerry Kuns' retinal chauvanists"
will have on people who are unfamiliar with the issue.
