This is why we need as many quantitative metrics in the guidelines as
possible.  Subjective causes many problems.

	Thank you once again for making my point more succinctly than I could ...
Which leads to the next need ... I need to have succinct and understandable
instruction on how to add whatever is needed to make pages more accessible
... Furthermore, to sell the idea county-wide instead of among colleagues
in the building, I need to be able to say ... if any of your students have
a blind relative, you need to do 1,2,3 to your page so they can see what's
going on with the student, if any of your students have a relative who has
to use .... whatever, you need to do whatever .... then have a summarizing
list that lists everything that needs to be done to make it work for anyone
(for teachers who decide it's too much effort to find out all needs among
relatives of their students <grin> ... ) That, I would hope, I could cull
from the Guidelines what applies to Front Page, spoon-feed it to the
newbies. Perhaps Version 2.0 ... Perhaps ...
