How easy is it to create WAI Level 1,2,3 sites?

The subject asks it all. I gather there is some potential to sell solutions and consulting with this tool. It looks promising. However, my solutions would have to "certify" WAI compliance.

I can see how a template design could get you a fair distance toward this. What I don't see is how the WYSIWYG editor and editing process could support accessibility, i.e., without going into the HTML side.

In particular, I'm thinking of <div>s and <span>s in the body text that provide hooks for CSS rules, text formatting and page layout. Also dealing with acronyms, abbreviations, altkey, title & alt attributes.

Sorry if this has been dealt with before; a pointer to a thread with suffice.

Thanks for your help.                ...edN

Sorry but the subject doesn't say it all if you don't know what WAI is--and I don't.

It's the WWW Consortium's "Web Accessibility Initiative", aimed at ensuring web pages are accessible to people with disabilities.
