  To quote myself to Tom on EFnet's #html:

   "Tina's Addendum to Flavell's Law: any site that claims to deal with
    accessibility issues will, with few exceptions, prove to be inaccessible"

  On occation one do feel down.

  I have been doing a few accessibility audits lately, and I admit to seeing
  a whole lot of things which the authors clearly *believe* are accessible,
  yet are not.

  How does the rest of you feel about the current status: are we moving
  towards a more accessible web, or are people - not to put too fine a point
  on it - not giving crap ?
