The client is hiring you, presumably, because you provide expertise she does not possess. Obviously there is no call for being confrontational, but if the client is proposing design directions that are in fact contrary to her own best interests, aren't we ethically obliged to point this out and provide alternatives? No matter what the business of the site's owner may be, if the site is not accessible to, and usable by its *target audience* then the site will fail. And guess who's going to be blamed for that failure...
