Re: Mozilla successes.

Hi, Peter.
I think if it would improve accessibility by all means it should probably
try and override  a statement like that which was a massive accessibility
In the world down the road I would hope that such accessibility issues such
as that would be uncommon across the net, but the reality is most web
masters  walk out of some ITT Tech school knowing little to nothing about
accessibility, and often make some accessibility problems on the web sites
they are in charge of maintaining.
In this case Mozilla should if at possible figure out what would be the most
accessible way to present the web page in question.
