Review of http://www.accessibility.nl/internet/WCAG20/WCAG20.htm

The version referenced has validation errors. I found two types on quick
review:

1) There are instances of code like

<dt><a name="CAPTCHA" id="CAPTCHA">CAPTCHA</a></dt>
<dd><a name="CAPTCHA">The CAPTCHA Project, Carnegie Mellon University. 
The project is online at </a>
<a href="http://www.captcha.net">http://www.captcha.net</a>.
</dd> 

The second <a name="CAPTCHA">... wrapped around the title shouldn't be
there. This sort of problem occurs several times.

2) There are also some stray empty <span> elements, some of which may be
introduced for the translation and some may reflect English content that
was moved.

These sorts of errors make it difficult to automatically integrate the
Dutch version with other resources we have. Because they are examples of
source-code changes, there may be other differences between the
translated and English version that were less easy to spot. I think the
document needs further review for technical and content accuracy.
