Free the PAS 78 guide!

Up until now, PAS 78 (Publicly Available Specification), a guide to good practice in commissioning accessible websites, should have been called PASTAWCAI 78 (Pubclicly Available Specification To Anyone Who Can Afford It) because you had to pay £35 to download it.

Fair enough - an honest day's pay for an honest day's work.

Anyway, I guess that the authors of the guide have now recouped their costs and maybe a little bit of profit on top and they've now made it free to download (although when I tried the link it was unavailable).

So if you're planning to commission a website and have any interest in web accessibility (which you should) or if you're involved in web development in any way, go and get it.
