And interestingly enough the area where they most failed?

The five most common website flaws: 

1. Poor use of lists; 
2. Not using headings and titles properly; 
3. Missing alternative text for graphical elements; 
4. Using pop-up windows. 

Thanks for the replies everyone,

Terry

The quickest way to 'guide' these companies would be for Google to
incorporate the algorithm from its beta accessible search engine into the
one used main stream. Large corporations would probably move quicker if
profits became threatened than they would a court order.
