Normally governments tend to be on the better side for web accessibilty, 
but I just followed a Google link to the National Archives, and, as well 
as various warnings about malformed URLs in refreshes and Location 
headers, I first got a page saying my browser capabilities where being 
checked, then, when it refreshed (it was a meta refresh 0 redirect, so I 
had to force it, as I was using Lynx) it simply said "You do not have 
javascript enabled.", with no further explanation, or help, and 
certainly no alternative method of accessing the material!

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
