recognize (but do not necessarily fully appreciate) the ADA mandate.
Web-related policies which emphasize readability by a broad range of browsers, including
text-based Lynx, but do not reflect any cohesive concern for barrier-free accessibility
and understanding of ADA.
Web-related policies which call for a few accessible design features (excluding
broad-range browser readability) but do not reflect any cohesive concern for barrier-free
accessibility and understanding of ADA.
Web-related policies which contribute close to nothing to web-page accessibility.

- Stand-alone accessible web design policies explicitly seeking compliance with the American
