DaveP:

What evidence is there for this? Many man-years spent
developing accessibility tools for html? And the hope that 
they might live on in HTML?

If (todays) XFO's were classed into abstract classes which
could then be subbed into media specific ones
(print, braille, audio, web ), then we could reduce the load
of authors and script writers. And reduce the effort needed
to keep up with the html (or xhtml) extensions that visual
presentation takes great delight in.


regards, DaveP
