Orion,

We aren't really trying to nitpick but I for one am interested in learning
what certification you have. 

There are several out there including those from CIW (Certified Internet
Webmaster administered by several services that also administer other better
known certifications like MCSE, Cisco, etc.) and WOW (World Organization of
Webmasters, accredited by the US Dept. Of Education), as well as HTML
Writer's Guild/International Association of Webmasters.  Even Brainbench is
offering a certification in web design.

The Guild of Accessible Web Designers (GAWDS) has been considering offering
a certification in accessible web design but it is in the early stages of
discussing what sort of testing or other proof of skills/application of
skills as well as what skills would need to be assessed. As a Guild member
who has been interested in the minimal discussion we've been having so far
I'm interested in other accreditation/certification entities. Especially
since partnership with someone already offering related certifications is
something worth considering.

I was not trying to use them as a qualification of my opinion because I am
certified. I should have said instead, I have been working closely with CSS
1 and 2 for years and understand them well. I was merely trying to qualify
two points 1) I understand the languages well and 2) I've been working with
them for a long time.
