Disability legislation has a long history in the UK. For several
decades, employers have been required to reserve a proportion of
jobs for disabled people. It is fair to say that almost none have
done so.

What has been done about it? You guessed it: nothing!

The DDA may help companies wake up to the advantages of
standards-compliant web sites, but so far, the only company that has
asked us to do a WAI-compliant site was a multinational chain.

We do them without being asked, though!
