There's the "Evaluation and Repair Tool" list at
which has some tools that might be relevant, in that they'd help with part
of the task of creating an accessible page. 

We're hoping that within the next half-year or so there will be some
commercial-grade authoring tools that will support the Authoring Tool
Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. Then those tools would have some built-in
assistance on creating accessible Web pages. (You can ask your favorite
software developer when they'll be supporting ATAG 1.0...)

You might also find the "Getting Started: Making a Web Site Accessible"
page at 
to be useful for thinking through how to use various WAI resources, or
perhaps you are already familiar with what's listed there.
