And this is largely irrelevant in many cases, because they are using CMS

It's their CHOICE to "attach a PDF" rather than merely type the information
into (in many cases) a WYSIWYG editor such as fckeditor or tinymce.

The key is that we need to EDUCATE the "educators" that accessibility is
important, and Word/Excel files disempower those without the software to
read and PDF files disempower those with slow connections and/or lack of
plug-ins.  Plain HTML disempowers nobody, because if they can read the site
they can read it.
