Mike, this is totally cool! I made a couple little formatting/linking  
edits. I've always wanted to know what I should really be checking in  
JAWS, and the information on what to check in the AIS or  
Accessibility Extension Toolbar is also fantastic to have.

In re: to the Simple Accessibility Walkthrough Protocol, is there an  
alternate way someone on a Mac can perform "Step 4: Use Internet  
Explorer (6 or 7) to check for alternative text for all images and  
title text for links"? Even though it wouldn't be "simple", do we  
want to point Mac users to the appropriate part of the http:// 
+Evaluation+Protocol+for+Macintosh for this info?

This is coming from a new Mac user who is still trying to get  
understand exactly what I can't do without PC! :)
