I know this has been hashed out in the past, and if I remember right the
list agreed, for the most part, that an accessible document successfully
regresses to the HTML 4.01/XHTML 1.0 specifications.

But, I'm unclear on the list's recommendations for adhering first to the
WCAG and then to the specifications for HTML and CSS. A site can meet WCAG
recommendations and not meet the HTML and CSS recommendations, but that is
obviously not advisable or even acceptable, in my opionion.

Given the rendering differences between Windows versions of Opera, Netscape
4.x, Netscape 6.x, and Internet Explorer 5.x, (not to mention the MacOS),
how much of an issue is it meeting the WCAG 1.0 recommendations and not
meeting the HTML/XHTML and CSS specifications?

Thanks!

Joel
