A web sites is accessible to /any/ web client
(otherwise it is not a web site).

When some people create sites that are only accessible with a
subset of web clients, they usually make an /extra effort/
(by not only using HTML, but additiional languages and plug-ins).

Web sites are not /made/ accessible.

Web sites /are/ accessible.
Crap, you've obviously not visited a site that renders as "[plug-in]"

...not accessible at all.

Grant is correct. Stefan should have specified that he was only
talking about that subset of websites that are written in HTML.
