I saw that after I posted and reloaded the link. :)
Though I would *really* like to see that All of the above option
available. And it would be nice if the site remembered that choice for
future visits. Even better would be a desktop version that can run
locally without being connected to the Internet or other authoring
applications.

It looked almost identical to me.
Now are both these tests based on the layout and listing of guidelines
at WAI , the WCAG 1.0?
Yet, they both display results identically... I do really like this
format, though I have been working with guidelines for quite a few
years, and cutting all the excess other stuff out is nice for me. I
wonder how well this works for those new to this area? And then there
are those that prefer examples and graphical examples or display.
