ah yes, more good links! yes, the more additional 
links we have for non-US laws will only help! as 
many of us US people found out last week...lots 
more accessibility legislation for electronic 
resources on the table in Europe than we have 
here at the moment.

>Anyway, if you have some sites that you would

>intend to focus on 508, tax credits and ADA 
>issues with games in public places.  May help
