I would note that the EVM2003 homepage (evm2003.sourceforge.net) is
entirely Section 508 Guideline blind-accessible (as should be the other
content pages). Thanks mainly to Matteo, though I have updated the
content based on his design. For a check, use Bobby:

I think the EVM2003 page makes good use of a stylesheet in a way that
provides a similar overall layout to the OVC page, while providing more
graceful fallback to screen readers and similar that ignore the
stylesheet.
