Table mad! Right! most I have looked at are table mad.
we are using Jive Forum (http://www.jivesoftware.com/), generally
accessible, but lots of nested tables and duplicate image/text links - an
annoyance and tedious, but workable. Am creating a review and suggestions to
improve accessibility.

Anyone care to recommend an 'accessible' bulletin board?

i've started with phpBB the beta, currently alpha is here:
http://www.peepo.co.uk/forum/phpBB2/

it's ok to install, and reasonably transparent, with a gnu licence but
'table' mad.

thanks
