Why is it that the paragraph you write about the importance of proofreading
is always the paragraph you don't find mistakes in when you proof read it?

MYTH #2: Accessible web authoring is expensive and time-consuming.

In short, this person's argument boiled down to "if I create an HTML page
that is not interoperable, not platform-independent, not accessible -- I can
do it less time than a correctly done web page." Well, duh; if I'm writing a
book and I don't bother with trivialities such as grammar, spell-checking,
or proofreading, I could probably get it done quicker too.
