Thank you Judy - I look forward to attending the meeting at CSUN.

For your information, although not specific to W3C/WAI work, I will be
speaking about U.S. accessible web litigation in my presentation at CSUN on
the Equal Access to Software and Information (EASI) track.  It will include
updated information that is not in my paper such as the rulemaking underway
requiring airlines to have accessible web sites.

Bob Regan of Macromedia will be following me at 10:40 in the same room with
his presentation on "Accessible Web Authoring With Macromedia Dreamweaver MX

designing accessible websites that comply with accessibility standards and
demonstrate its built-in accessibility validation tool.
