[Is there any chance that we just have plain text, or if that's not
possible, the HTML is authored to appropriate accessibility standards?]

The scripts are certainly not appropriately authored, there are numerous
situations and browsers when they would cuase errors, I wouldn't say it
was in any way authored to "best practice" in the industry, there's no
real reason why it's authored with the possibility of errors, it would be
a 10 minute job to change the scripts I've seen.

The currently commented out script on the front page is particularly bad,
but is currently commented out, so perhaps they know that.  :-)
