I would believe the Same rules apply. Whether it is an IntrAnet, or the
Equal opportunity employer[gov], means there is likelihood that a wide range

More information and resources regarding US policies are listed here:

*By state* policies here:

[included in those listings -- governmental/federal agency informaton]

Policies Relating to Web Accessibility [various countries are listed]

=I switched systems here, though I did have a link to a Navy website tht had
a really nice set of pages regarding the various items of Sec 508 and
information on how to comply or make work for all their page displays.
Included were topics on Forms and Accessibility.
