Thanks for this, John. Very timely as I'm considering using WordPress to
redesign a non-profit's website. At this point, the interface doesn't need
to be overly accessible. I'm more concerned that the output is accessible.

I didn't see WordPress listed in the wiki article; not sure if that means
anything. Any thoughts/comments on using WordPress?
