 Actually, it was the Sydney Olympics that got me into accessibility. At the
time, there was a story posted on Slashdot about how IBM wanted some
exhorbitant amount of money to go back and add ALT tags. (it got a LOT of
press at the time, from what I remember).

So I read the stories & started asking questions... and well, couple years
later, here I am, annoying you all with my questions!

Best,

Denise

Well since one of the folks who testified at that trial also contacted
the
SLC folks...I am not sure that they are not aware of it.

Sincerely,

> that the Sydney Olympics had a serious issue with accessibility, and
while

I suspect, though, that very few of the decision makers in commercial
web
page design are aware of the Sydney court decisions.
