I would be interested in how useful you find the tools.

HiSoft
was used a few years ago to audit the govt agency sites here in NZ.�
I found the HiSoft report generally meaningless but it might have improved
since then.

We have a lot of pdf files on our site.� And
nearly all are converted to HTML equivalents, the tool picked up that pdf
files existed and gave us a fail and did not continue.

I was
quite disappointed in the result but it may have been due to poor
deployment.
