I am responding to a blog post that is two years old but that I still find relevant. In your blog post, you focused on MediaWiki as a platform, but other aspects are important as well: templates that generate accessible code and the ability to convince other Wikipedia editors to follow accessibility practices. On the Dutch Wikipedia, for example, certain accessibility improvements were reverted with the message "Crap removed" in the edit summary. See for example the list of contributions at http://bit.ly/ckFXVk (search for "Crap eruit, we zijn en-wiki niet": "Crap removed, we are not en-wiki"). So convincing other Wikipedia editors to adopt accessibility practices is very important. But how do you do that?
