The new version of the Firefox Accessibility Extension 1.3 from University of Illinois has a built-in accessibility reporting features.

http://firefox.cita.uiuc.edu

The accessibility extension can also create DHTML reports (includes content generated through Javascripting) with the Functional Accessibility Evaluator (FAE) Reporting mechanism.  

http://fae.cita.uiuc.edu

The reports for both Firefox Extension and FAE are based on the use of the iCITA Best Practices to implement Section 508 and W3C WCAG accessibility requirements.
