The extention on the URL indicates that the website is running
proprietary software: Cold Fusion. Are you using proprietary software
when you use their website, or since the code is actually running on
their server is it not considered proprietary?
Of course, you are only being sent static files -- nothing proprietary
about those, right?

You would think that they would be willing to provide these (at the
very least) for the hearing impaired.
