89% of 408 California municipal Web sites surveyed flunked Priority 1 
(in automated testing). 75 were manually tested, also with poor 
results, though the report goes into no detail at all on that point. 
(In fact, it's only mentioned on the blog.)

And the actual report is, of course, in a PDF (tagged, with three 
minor access errors)--

-- which for some reason Google doesn't have an HTML version of. (Are 
they cutting down on that? Even PDFs I put up aren't converted.)
