Okay, I am going to go out on a limb here and hope I am not infringing too
badly on any W3C copyrights ...

I have gone through the online documentation and created a 20 page Microsoft
Word report that is based on the Priorities and Checkpoints for each section
with examples and explanations for each.

This was done for my office as most of the users were completely overwhelmed
with the W3C site and couldn't figure out where they needed to go for the
information or got themselves lost in 'link-land'.

The conetent is from the W3C, I have just massaged it to make it a little
more understandable and organized for people.

If anyone from the W3C finds that I shouldn't have this posted for people to
use due to copyright infringement, etc., please let me know and I will
remove it from my site immediately, but until then, for those interested,
feel free to download it  and hopefully it will help spread the
accessibility movement further and faster ...
