Not knowing what .hta might be, I have no idea whether or not it's
"supported here".  Microsoft technologies are never simply dismissed
out of hand, of course, although sometimes the question of accessibility
can be tangential to the actual technology.

For example, ASP -- which is a server-side scripting technology found
on Microsoft web servers.  The scripting language itself is not 
inherently accessible -or- inaccessible (although tools to create it
could be one or the other); instead the issue is with the -output-
of ASP scripts and whether or not they produce HTML that is valid and
accessible.

So, what is .hta and what is a URL for reading more about it?
