Hi Mary,

Accessify recently had an article which contained a few accessible sites.
The article concentrates on good looking sites, but only has a few. I don't
know if that would be enough for what you're looking for:
http://www.accessify.com/articles/attractive-accessible-sites.asp

Thank you for the information on the resource listing, I look forward to
seeing it when it's ready.

Best regards.

Gez
