Excel 2007 does not support synchronization with Sharepoint lists

There is a loose of functionality when you move from Excel 2003 to Excel 2007. The later can not synchronize with Sharepoint lists, as the predecessor could do. This behaviour is by design, as you can see en this Microsoft KB Article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/930006/en-us. The workaround suggested is creating a macro and keeping the file to be synchronized in 2003 format.

How to develop both accessible and outstanding-looking websites

More and more customers are asking us for developing accessible websites, or or updating existing ones. In most cases they ask to complain WAI standards (http://www.w3.org/WAI/).

Designing a WAI compliant website (even at the lowest level of the standard) with a nice-looking appearance is complex and expensive.

However I have just discovered another approach, at www.gartner.com. Gartner has a secondary accessible website and therefore the main site can still use all the user experience resources available. Great idea!
