Cath:

Thanks for the URL... it sounds like an easy solution. The "need" is that
the W3C specifications state that these documents must be accessible
REGARDLESS of the "user client". Inferring that a thorough test would
include previewing the site on multiple "user clients"... including
Netscape, IE, Opera, Speech readers, Text only browsers, and any other forms
of assistive technology I can get my hands on.

I don't know what need is, but if it is just to see the behavior of a text
browser, there is the LYNX-emulator available through
http://www.delorie.com/web/lynxview.html.

Anyone know of a good text ONLY web browser? I would like to find one to
use to assist us in testing sites for accessibility. I was looking at Lynx
but couldn't find an "easy to install" version. They all require you to
download your own dos based packet drivers... etc. It didn't sound easy.

I have exactly $0 to spend on this - so it would have to be
freeware/shareware. And I'm using a Windows operating system.


Thanks in advance,
G
