Retailer giant Target is facing a class-action lawsuit regarding the inaccessibility of their web site for users with disabilities.  Just recently the judge refused to drop the case and stated that the their web site must be as accessible as their retail stores.  The outcome of this case should be interesting to watch.

The company I work for has to ensure that all our products are 508 compliant so we have a fair number of discussions over web accessibility.  Visual Studio does lend a hand (see ASP.NET Accessibility (Visual Studio) ) in permitting you to design accessible sites and it even has an Accessibility Validation tool that can be used. Sounds like a great feature.

Does anyone know if VS is ahead of the game in designing accessible sites?
