Hi,

San Francisco State University has filed or is filing a suit claiming that
the ADA is unconsitutional.  My concern is that universities will
start putting web page accessibility on hold until the case
is finally decided.  Since this could take years, it might seriously
affect trying to get web page accessibility into the values or
standards of the web.  Does anyone have suggestions about non-ADA
arguements that can be used on web page accessibility?  Are there
504 issues that can be used as a back up to ADA's requirement of
"effective communication"?

Scott
