Holly, I agree that Section 508 is not enough.. But if you're talking about
the Hisoft validator, it's dropdown does 508 as well as WCAG I, II, & III...

And the interesting thing is, the report I received from Hisoft is identical
(even the formatting) as Cynthia Says... I'd say they're all just reselling
or repackaging "something"...

For what it's worth...
