Research conducted in March 2006 by user experience experts Nomensa, 
shows that almost 75 percent of businesses in the FTSE 100 list of 
companies fail to meet the minimum requirements for website 
accessibility.  The homepages of each website were measured and 
evaluated, using manual testing for the first time, against the 
globally recognised Web Content Accessibility Guidelines* (WCAG).
