| Just to echo this - my girlfriend is partially sighted (no snide 
| remarks, please :-) and is quite happy using plain text email, but 
| can't make any sense out of Web pages that are a mass of in-lined 
| advertisments, in-lined backgrounds and coloured text, fonts, frames, 
| applets and assorted multimedia crud^H^H^H^Hcontent.  So, it's 
| heartening to hear that at least one browser vendor is thinking 
| seriously about the problem of access.  I can almost forgive you for 
| DOS and Windows*.  Almost.

Could you try to distill her experience into some requirements for
browser features?  It's not clear from your limitied description what a
browser could reasonably do to help.
