 Dear Loretta Guarino Reid ,

The Mobile Web Best Practice Working Group has reviewed the comments you
sent [1] on the Last Call Working Draft [2] of the W3C mobileOK Basic
Tests 1.0 published on 30 Jan 2007. Thank you for having taken the time to
review the document and to send us comments!

The Working Group's response to your comment is included below, and has
been implemented in the new version of the document available at:
http://www.w3.org/TR /2007/WD-mobileOK-basic10-tests-20070525/

Please review it carefully and let us know if you agree with it or not
before 22 June 2007. In case of disagreement, you are requested to provide
a specific solution for or a path to a consensus with the Working Group. If
such a consensus cannot be achieved, you will be given the opportunity to
raise a formal objection which will then be reviewed by the Director
during the transition of this document to the next stage in the W3C
Recommendation Track.


For the Mobile Web Best Practice Working Group,

Your comment on 2.2 Testing Outcomes:
> We like the similarity in approach to the descriptions of these test
> and WCAG2 techniques. For MobileOK Basic Tests 1.0, the tests are
> written in "programmatic" style. Test outcomes for MobileOK Basic 1.0
> tests are pass, fail, and informative warnings. WCAG2.0 test outcomes
> are "true", or "false". It would be worth exploring whether we could
> use consistent language.

Working Group Resolution:
Consistency is important, all else being equal, but here we believe that
"pass" and "fail" are more understandable as test outcomes. The EARL
specification also uses these terms, and we would also like to remain
consistent with EARL.


Your comment on 3 mobileOK Basic Tests:
> MobileOK Basic 1.0 limits itself to machine-testable properties, while
> WCAG2 includes human-testable as well as machine-testable properties.
> There may be occasions where MobileOK Basic tests can be used to test
> all or part of a WCAG2 technique.

Working Group Resolution:
Leave text as is. Shadi from the EARL WG is participating in the checker
activity so hopefully this will be an outcome.
