Dear Steven,

Thank you for your comments. I understand what you mean. I was just trying to simplify my statements so they could be as easily understandable as possible, and, I admit it, trying also to get the maximum impact in very few words.

There are many more aspects in accessibility than just the ones related to blindness, but I think it is better to start with basics when you don't know the background of your possible public.

Regards, Rafael.

>I am totally blind and use a graphical browser, as do many blind people.
>Even though I can and do use a graphical browser(IE 4.01), PDF is not generally accessible.
