Kinda pointless when its in your email, y'know.:-)

Also...most ironic to me are the Home Office pages for the UK. In many cases, 
they flunk accessibility so badly I would hate to be David Blunkett if 
something happens where personally he has to know what they say, and is being 
hit by the press about it. Poor guy is going to get hurt badly when adaptive 
tech can't interpret the page the press is howling about. I mean, unless 
you've been to it yourself, how can you really answer questions, especially 
if its coming from the press? No staffer can brief someone as fully that they 
may as well have been there themselves. (Side thought: The UK as a whole 
doesn't seem like a disability-friendly place in many respects. Hell, when I 
had a relative over there on a business trip, he came back and said that it 
seemed like it's viciously HOSTILE to those with disabilities (I'm partially 
sighted, have been pondering doing foreign trips over summers while I'm in 
college, and just asked him to look at it for the hell of it). Wrong 
impression, or am I right?)
