Would it not be also appropriate to mention how many blind and viusally
impaired users cannot use the internet at all?

Just seems one should mention that.

Thanks for the quick responses. I have been doing a lot of research on
accessible web design for my company, and was just saying how I bet there
are more blind and visually impaired users than Mac users on the Internet -
according to the OS and browser stats at http://www.StatMarket.com.

Well...I was asked to back that assertion up by a manager. <GULP> I don't
know how accurate the self-reported figures at GVU are, but they the only
ones I've seen so far.

It sure would be a boost to accessible web design efforts if we had a good
source of these figures!

Again, thanks for the quick replies.
