On a Saturday night, I should not have taken the extra leap off-topic.
However, much rewarded by information sent, which will be shared with Legal
Affairs.

However, note to use the exemption one must be an authorized entity and that
"Large print" or illustrated renditions are not included in the exemption.
Also, to use this copyright exemption, one must limit the viewing of the web
site to only a person with a disability.  In essence, it does not apply to
worldwide web pages, as you noted.
