      • What happens when surfers become authors?
        • Web author numbers are increasing; but this dilutes the technical capability of web authors - what does this mean for accessibility?
        • How well do web authoring tools and user agents (including AT) support accessible authoring?
        • And how accessible are these web authoring tools - whether available publicly as part of the Social Web or as corporate business tools?
