hehehe Good one.  :-)

Actually the first time I tried this Rupert, I had the "pages from 
Australia" option button turned on. This turned up a fascinating and 
comprehensive article by Tom Worthington about the failure of SOCOG to 
provide a disabled access to the 2000 Olympic web site


and this Pandora archive of the original problem website.


Interesting reading and good case study to share with students ...

Regards Roland
