The glasshaus assets were purchased by Apress (http://apress.com) and they
are working to republish "Constructing Accessible Web Sites" along with the
other glasshaus titles.

Its a pity what's happened to Wrox/Glasshaus - I've got a nice collection of
their web Usability related titles in my bookcase. Although I believe that
their copyright has been acquired by another publisher (can't remember
offhand which one, and news.google.com isn't helping me there!) - so
hopefully there is scope of their title seeing the light of day again.

As for your reversion back to Mike Paciello's work - can I ask for your
opinion on it? It sounds like it covers accessibility material sufficiently
well for your course - what was the reason for selecting Glasshaus'
publication as a replacement. Was it a matter of being a newer / more
up-to-date title?


Thanks
Mike.
