Good to see some discussion of the anti-design bias of the W3C and
the offputting ugliness of the W3C's sites, rivaling even Jakob
Nielsen's. If you want designers to comply with Web standards--
including accessibility-- then that means you want designers to
work at your level. In return, you have to be working at the
*designers'* level. It's quid pro quo.
