Hi Karl!

Thanks for the feedback.

Yes, we have reduced the list because I'm evaluating those validators; but
yes, I have to look further. Anyway, (correct me if I'm wrong) WCAG 1 can't
be automatically validated; it has to be manually checked.

Anyway, the base of this is that I'm developing a new concept in
Accessibility Validation, so when I have a preview, I'll share to all of
you.

Thanks again, Karl
