RE: [css-d] An Outsider's View

This is a very misunderstood issue in the U.S.  It took me quite awhile to
get it all straight myself.

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, Subsection 1194.22 applies to
Federally funded agencies.  The ADA applies to everyone else.

RUST Randal said: "In the United States, the ADA REQUIRES companies to
provide accessible information to disabled users. Tabular layouts,
especially those that make use of nested tables, PROHIBIT access."

I thought that was only for certain government websites. Is there a more
comprehensive requirement I haven't heard of?
