>A better business case is "hey, web design companies! if you write
accessible HTML you might get government contracts easier!" -- but
that is a 508 business case, not a general web accessibility business
case.

I agree in principle with everything you have said here Kynn but wouldn't it
strengthen the business case as well as the Section 508 compliance pitch if we
edited your response to read:

"Hey, web design companies - if you write accessible HTML you can extend your
client market to include xxxxxx people with disabilities as well as increase
your prospects for securing government contracts !"
