accessibility checkers.

My reply:

In reference to the WAVE label parsing problem previously cited at
http://www.hoehnermusikfan.net, we have made some alterations to the
WAVE code that have corrected the error. Thanks for the previous feeback
that allowed us to catch and correct the error.


>>If no browser would display this code then perhaps WAVE should
distinguish between a linked script and script embedded in the page,
and/or between script in the HEAD element and script in the BODY

My reply:

This particular algorithm is one that is unchanged from the previous
version of the WAVE (which we did not develop). We haven't yet
investigated all of the intricacies of this aspect of javascript
accessibility, so I appreciate you bringing it to our attention.
