Dutch web site accessibility law
Quirksmode noted that, since September, Dutch government websites have had to be accessible. Oh and then Ajaxian linked quirksmode with "Be Accessible, or Break the Law", and all of a sudden it's a hot topic.
I've worked on Dutch government web sites myself, back when this was an internal initiative called "Drempels weg" (Removing obstacles). After retro-fitting a text-only version of one important site, we were very glad that the next one we worked on had accessibility designed in from the beginning.
Here then is a shout-out to all the people I worked with on those sites, and to my numerous colleagues that are currently busy with other government sites.
Sometimes, it's nice to be able to see a bit of progress. I'm sure this is all very much appreciated by the people who need web sites to be accessible.
