    Most of the resource sites are such as http://diveintoaccessibility.org and there's a very good web design company who's own site is worth looking at (the source code moreso) - http://www.readingroom.com.

    I like to think a personal site I did is accessible! - http://welcome.to/comber

    to be honest, sitepoint is still not 100% accessible (particularly, there are some functionalities relying completely on javascript begin enabled, for instance)

    nah m8, its sometimes if the site is down for maintenance then the image doesn't appear as it's an absolute url to their site. I need to change it anyway as stats4all are going to start charging!!

    The "enhanced mode" reply relies on JS, behaviors (the .htc files), and something called "contenteditable", which is IE/Windows only. However, you can still use the same "normal mode" reply (like the old SPF and any vB 2.x site) on any browser. IMO it's a decent compromise for not being able to take the "enhanced mode" cross-platform.

    Actually it could depend upon what aspects of accessibility you are following for example: http://www.xhtmlcoder.com/worthvalley/ (beta stage site) is not very accessible and doesn't look that great.

    However, it has passed enough criteria in the Robert's opinion to reach "Level A Conformance to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0" where labelled. Albeit if you were red-green colour-blind you may have great difficulty viewing the content, let alone the many other "disabilities" it doesn't accommodate for, but it is not a site that promotes accessibility.

    A better example of an amateur site that has also considered accessibly would be: http://www.rickbull.co.uk/ although I not quite sure some of those labelled areas are actually 'Level Triple A' though you should instantly realise why his main navigation menu was placed on the right-hand side of the page.

    I'm almost done designing an accessible site for a charity, Silver Lining: URL: http://www.silverlining.ie/test/

    I've used CSS extensively to make it accessible and have also given the visual user a choice for colour and location of navigational menu.

    One thing I want to add is Access Keys

    We (Loud) built a fully content managed site for LE Group that has been independently audited as accessible to W3C priority 2 = www.le-group.co.uk

    Personally I like the way it looks.

    I'd have to agree. That's a very attractive site!

    it's not that difficult, if you know what you're doing...
