In the article published today, "IBM's Intranet One of the World's Top Ten
", in Financial News - Yahoo! Finance, the Nielsen Norman group recognized 
"accessibility" as one of the 5 key features that made the IBM intranet, 
know as the "w3 On demand workplace", as "One of the World's Top Ten":

that accessibility can make your site world class.  Those on this list 
know this, but the rest of the internet world is still learning.
