Mark - it also depends on which state in Oz you are in - I know that the State Govt in Qld is bringing in the new IM26 (currently in review mode) soon that will cover *all* govt websites - it states that by december 2001 all govt websites must be priority level 1 accessible and all homepages of govt sites (the first page) need to be priority level 2 accessible as well. This is making my life fun atm coz I'm on contract to a govt dept and I'm redesigning the portal page to fit in with this as well as rewriting the developer guidelines to include the relevant information on accessibility.
