Hi, Tim,

There are lots of good resources on the Web to help you getting started with accessibility. I'm guessing since you're on the WebAIM list, you've seen the resources from WebAIM at http://www.webaim.org/

Here are some introductory resources from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI):
* Introduction to Web Accessibility
* Essential Components of Web Accessibility
* Improving the Accessibility of Your Web Site
* And many others available from the WAI Web site at:

In addition to the WebAIM list, you might be interested in the W3C WAI Interest Group (WAI IG) mailing list. You can join the WAI IG mailing list and post questions by following the instructions under:
You can also search the WAI IG list archives through:

Welcome to the Web accessibility community! <grin>
