Carlos started working on CPSnet like most of us start to improve our own web pages to make them accessible and meet WAI/WCAG standards.
With a keen desire to make our creations accessible to everyone, no matter what their ability or disABILITY.
A limited knowledge of WAI requirements and how to render his AP level one compliant or what was section 508.
The willingness to seek help from all sources.
The love and compassion of a Shetland Sheep dog who often runs in circles, but is in fact closing in on his goal.
And now feels both relief and pride in accomplishing what at one point might have seemed like an impossible task.
After an huge amount of time-consuming uploads, he had the following results... for the entire site, which is quoted with permission from the Apex forum.
HTML 4.01 Valuators (W3C): Compliant, HTML 4.01 Transitional; WDG validation: No errors
Bobby Online: Passed all the automatic checks for "508 Approved" and "A Approved"; Watchfire WebXACT: "W3C WCAG - A Compliance" and "Section 508", passed all the automatic checking's also.

Back to the manual checks :)
