Re: are there any accessibility testing best practices

I've just had a look at the Functional Web Accessibility Evaluation
Tool - in the future, are you likely to be saying at what point the
site has failed?
For example, it tells me that after the H1, there are 16 header
elements, of which one is nested improperly.
The H1 is pretty near the top!

It would be useful to know where the problems are, so that I can think
about how I can fix them. As it's a blog, some things are rather
complex & it might be a case of swapping templates - and it's useful
to know if it's something I've done, or something they've done.
