Also, Martin, the laws vary from country to country. It seems that the UK
has tighter laws about accessibility and websites, and I just heard that
Canada has stricter laws than we do in the U.S., too. Here in the U.S.,
only government-related sites are required by law to follow our U.S. 508
guidelines. U.S. businesses aren't required to follow the guidelines yet. I
do hope it becomes a requirement, though, as I suspect so many businesses
won't provide accessible-oriented sites otherwise.
