Members of the list may be interested to hear that the Chancellor's Office
of the California Community Colleges is requiring compliance with the WAI
Accessibility Guidelines as quoted:

"It is required that all California community college instructional Web
sites created or substantially modified after adoption of these guidelines
[WAI Accessibility Guidelines] be Priority l compliant.  It is strongly
recommended that all California community college instructional Web sites
created or substantially modified after adoption of these guidelines be
Priority 2 compliant."
