Ian,

    Absolutely, I mailed YouSearched to let them know about the problem a=
nd also to give my compliments.

    Initially I received the following reply:-

Thank you for your kind message and for bringing the Bobby issue to us.

when we did our Bobby test it was carried out on the Yousearched lay out =
and accessibility design and not the content within the Yousearched. Yous=
earched act as a search engine which contains millions of other websites =
which unfortunatly are not all accessibility friendly,

unfortunatly that gives a wrong reading on Bobby. sadly only 18% of the W=
orld websites are accessibility friendly, lets hope this number will incr=
ease."

    I suspect that the person manning the  email desk may not be a develo=
per, as the home page does not appear to carry external content. This onl=
y appears to be the case after a search is made. So I mentioned this and =
received the following:-

    "I quite understand your advice with regard to Bobby and will act acc=
ordinally, once again I thank you for your valuable suggestion."

    It's great to find a receptive team and more power to them in the fut=
ure!

L=E9onie.
