Hi David,

This may or may not be the case. However, we are interested in the 
engineering aspects of including accessibility support at the early 
stages of the design, not only within Web pages, but also client side 
technologies such as browsers and rich media technologies such as Flash 
and SVG (as we believe Rich media such as Flash will not go away). We 
are concerned that, as the Web becomes more pervasive, accessibility 
support will not be encoded from the early stages; hence this workshop. 
Hopefully, we'll get lots of interesting opinions like yours, and we'd 
welcome your participation.

Yeliz and Simon
