        I had made the FM help file set net accessible *primarily* with
  Al in mind.  I see that Scott has further expanded the access to them
  via   Have you even looked at them yet,
  Al?  Have you?!?!?

Yes, thank you.  I have not been keeping up with your Help files by 
download, so I think this is very valuable.  

Did you make a separate zip of them?  I thought you had done that
for my benefit and I searched all over and didn't find them.
I must have misunderstood "and then I made another zip..."
        The implication that Lynx development during the past three years
  has not had a "policy commitment" to helping meet needs of the blind is
  preposterous.  There's no other word for it -- preposterous!!
There were two parts to my suggestion.  OK, your heart is in the
right place.  Why not follow through and let us clean up the Help
file formatting.  The top-level page doesn't make a reasonable
accomodation.  It list multiple acronyms as links on one line.
Acronyms are a real barrier for the speech accessor, and multiple
links on a line is not so hot.  Both of these impediments could
be removed without materially degrading the service to sighted

Have you read the guidelines to merit a ribbon?  Do you think
that page passes?  Get real, man!

I have repeatedly pointed out to the blind users I know that you
have over and over again gone out of your way to facilitate use
by the blind and visually impaired.

        Burnout, sigh...  I need more than a vacation!  I need to
  NOT_DEFINE myself to an INN.  :) :) :) ;(
Get a grip.  Let the product go through an open, objective
evaluation on the way to release.
