I am still fighting with George Washing University to clean up there online 
courseware (http://prometheus.gwu.edu/).  This is a follow up to 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-ig/1999AprJun/0353.html

I have not even had success finding out where to send my carefully crafted 
prose filled with suggestions and constructive criticism (a.k.a., rants). 
 I am still (I think) on good terms with the folks at disabled student 
services and with the course instructor.  These people are, however, well 
meaning but not technically inclined.  Neither party has been willing (or 
able) to get me an audience with the computer science people who run the 
show.

The site is heavily dependent on (poorly written from what I can tell) 
JavaScript and frames.  I imagine that there will be no quick fix.  In the 
meantime, I would like to educate myself about the technology they are 
using.  Can anyone tell me what software generates dynamic pages that end 
in .cfm?  The URL for a typical page (content frame actually) looks like:
http://prometheus.gwu.edu/production/input/syllframe.cfm?syll=yes
(This link will not do you any good, since the site also relies heavily on 
cookies.)

Thanks very much.
Filing a formal OCR complaint seems like a better idea every day...
