    Text only sites

    My own view is - 'don't bother'; this seems to square with WAI, Joe Clark, and practically every accessibility authority you could mention.

    So what do you do when you are on a project with people who have convinced themselves that text only pages are important, and refuse to listen to a contrary view?

    No, you put up a valid argument with examples as to why you shouldn't.

    I tell them why they're wrong with reasoned argument, and if all else fails, charge double

    You create an extra style sheet containing only this:
    Code:
    img {display:none}
    Then you wait a couple of weeks, show them the result, and charge them $10,000.

    Or you can charge 30K for this
    Code:
    img { content: attr(alt);}
    body { font-family: "Courier New", Courier, monospace; color: black; background: white; }
    * { border: none; padding: 0; margin: 0; }
