I rang Microsoft on 132058 to try to find the correct address.  Got a bit of
a run around when initially the girl didn't know what I meant by
Accessibility then ended up finding the web page and telling me there was
lots of information there which I told her I already knew.

I have now emailed the company again using the web support form for
accessibility and will let you know if they comply with their promise to
contact us within 24 hours.

There is a possibility I wrote that address incorrectly as it was given in a
large rather noisy conferance room as a reply to a question the presenter
couldnt answer.

>I did ask about accessibility there but the presenters, other than pointing
these items out referred me to a Microsoft Accessibility person and
suggested g.hinkle@microsoft.com as a suitable contact..

Harry I tried emailing this person with queries regarding the accessibility
problems in tables created using Word 2000 and output via Word generated Web
pages (does anyone know how to get Word 2000 to generate TH attributes?)

Any way the email bounced back undeliverable as per this message:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Delivery to the following recipients failed.

       g.hinkle@microsoft.com

I suppose it may be an old email address Harry. Does anyone have a current
direct email contact for MS staff dealing with accessibility issues?
