Abstract

This paper presents the work carried out under the umbrella of the EU-funded project BenToWeb to develop a complete XHTML 1.0 test suite for the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. Initial work covered the June 2005 working draft, which was subsequently updated to the April 2006 working draft (“last call”). At the time of writing, a thorough evaluation, involving end users, is being carried out.
