No, I didn't get their page (though it's quite possible that some silly
trick like that is the reason it failed for me).  I just saw the FPI
somewhere else (see below).

Strange.  From their reputation, I thought softquad had a clue (though
the markup at <URL:http://www.access-board.gov/sec508/guide/1194.22.htm>
suggests otherwise).  Why should they be messing about on the dark side?

It would be fine if they'd be so considerate as to publish it, and
furnish us with a URL when they use it in a FPI!
