I would hope things are being looked at.  As far as the legal aspects goes I
mean, and the law in question is the ADA.  Unless it is a federal government
web site.

Sincerely,

    wouldn't the Salt Lake site be covered by 508, also it would be the same
    site for the paralympics, so some of the olympians might not be able to
    access their own scores?!


         That depends...Does SLOC get federal funding? Do the Olympics? I
don't know, but I would assume yes, for local efforts like the website.

         Meanwhile...yes....it WOULD be the same site for the paralympics, I
believe.

         Man, what I would give for a good lawyer working pro bono right
now...
