Ah. Is this a world where brief and concise means "no" ? I don't
think so. Both Tom (who sent the reply you criticize above) and I do
care about accessibility, in particular in Authoring Tools. Tom's answer
was quite easy to understand IMHO : "you are accessibility experts, we are
not; help us and we'll do our best". Fairly acceptable, n'est-il pas ?

Absolutely. Only my summer vacations prevented me from attending, even by IRC
or telephone, your last meeting in Hellerup.
