I agree that this document would be more appropriately named -  
"Developing a Plan to Retrofit a Web site for Accessibility."

The word retrofit doesn't mean much for me.  I read it and my first  
reaction is, huh?  The word fix is more understandable for me  
(Developing a Plan to Fix a Web site for Accessibility) but maybe  
"fix" conveys the wrong meaning.
