There is no 'best' imho. They all have problems, see http://juicystudio.com/article/invalid-content-accessibility-validators.php - you'll have to use a combination of at least a couple and beware of false positives and missing negatives.

I would personally echo Patrick's views on TAW - nice and configurable. (Haven't yet tried it with Gez's tests in the above link.) Also, A-prompt and the trusted Tidy if you're working in a windows environment and want to test developmental work rather than live pages.

Looking at Accessibility evaluation software, could anyone recommend the best tool for all-round evaluation?

And yes, I will be doing human testing also!

Thanks,
