Jorge Plano has written a terrific set of Guidelines for Accessible Web
Design. They are completely in Spanish and he has done a terrific job.

I congratulate him, and applaud his effort as these a guidelines that do not
force the user to either translate them into Spanish, or learn English.  In
my opinion this is a huge step forward in communicating these ideas around
the world.

Jose kindly gave me permission to place them on the www.icdri.org site.  I
have converted the files and made the corrections he asked me to. They are
located at: http://www.icdri.org/accesibilidad.htm   They  can also be found
at:  http://www.educ.ar/educar/home/acces.jsp.

If people know of other non English based guidelines I would like to place
those links as well.

Those of us that use English as our primary language need to realize that
the real disability is not being able to access content.  Hopefully these
guidelines are step in the direction of removing at least that forced
