Hi Roger,

I trust you have looked at http://peepo.com and http://peepo.co.uk - IMHO  
among the very best examples of what can be done for a particular user  
group (children, adolescents and young adults with serious intellectual  
disabilities).

The original versions of these (eight years ago) were in fact flash, but  
Jonathan has long since moved to more standards-based design and  
development. (Which is mostly a good thing, but it means I get mail from  
him because he pushes the envelopes of possibility pretty hard. There are  
few people who have done more than he has to improve the implementations  
of SVG in terms of usability just by reporting and following up on  
problems...)

cheers

Chaals
