My personal favorite accessibility aspect of the new White House
site is in the text-only pages.  On each graphical page there is a link
to
a text-only version that is quite accessible including a text navigation

bar at the top.  However, the links in the text navigation bar on all of

the text-only pages go to the graphics version of each page.  I thought
that when I followed a link on the text-only page that it might take me
to the next page as text-only as well.  Silly me.
