Web Accessibility and UK Law: Telling It Like It Is: A List Apart

Web Accessibility and UK Law: Telling It Like It Is: A List Apart - the law in the UK means websites have to be accessible. Many websites do not comply with this and neither does the code generated by ASP.NET controls - mainly the DataGrid control. A hotfix is available, but you need to contact Microsoft to obtain it. Unless they allow you to download it, we will have to wait until .NET 1.2 (or is is 2.0?) comes out. Even with the hotfix I don't think DataGrids are completely accessible - you need JavaScript enabled to page the DataGrid.
