congratulations on getting some more accessibility into the web. One of the
things I particularly enjoyed was reading hte article about using Bobby,
where you pointed out that thre are a number of manual checks that are
involved in claiming Bobby approval. In many cases these manual checks are
extremely important.

  A few months ago I posted a message to this list announcing that issue 3
  of the Exploit Interactive web magazine featured a number of articles
  about accessibility.  There was a discussion concerning some of the
  problems I'd had in getting the magazine to fully abide by the
  accessibility authoring guidelines, because of problems in getting style
  sheets to work in Netscape.
  Issue 4 of Exploit Interactive web magazine is now out - see
  The web site now passes the Bobby accessibility test.  However images in
  articles are contained in tables in order to overcome the stylesheet
  problems mentioned.
  An article on this topic is available at:
  Articles in the current issue now contain links to the Bobby, HTML
  validation and BabelFish translation services.  A summary of
  developments to the web site is available at:
