I am wondering which would be the most and best way to achieve standards
compliant symbols such as commas and apostrophes?
I.e. &amp; &gt; etc,
Do they have to be coded characters or can they be regular text?
Kind regards

I would recommend that you ask Microsoft - or at least read their web
site - see http://www.microsoft.com/enable/news/newsletter/mar09.aspx 

And I would recommend you ask the AT vendors who support it, like
Freedom Scientific's JAWS support, AiSquared's ZoomText support, and
open source things like NVDA, etc.

Does anyone agree that IE8 will have far more accessibility features  
than either IE6 or IE7? And that it will be the most accessible out of  
all browsers?
