I think building Section 508 compliance into PmWiki is an excellent
idea and will be glad to do it, if others can let me know where PmWiki
isn't currently Section 508 compliant.  :-)

PmWiki already strives to be XHTML compliant, so if there are any
validation/compatibility issues there I'd appreciate hearing about 
them also.
