Hello Greg,

Thank you for your comments on WCAG 2.0 [1].  This email shows how the WCAG 
WG has attempted to address one of your concerns.  We will send a separate 
email for each of the issues you raised. Please let us know if we have 
adequately addressed your issues.

Issue 670 [2]

Greg Lowney writes:

13.     Guideline 1.3 Checkpoint 3 "Text content is not presented over a
background image or pattern OR the text is easily readable when the page
is viewed in black and white (no grayscale)."

13.a.    I think this belongs under 1.6 "Foreground content is easily
differentiable from background for visual default presentations" rather
than under 1.3.

In the March 11, 2004 Working Draft we moved the statement to the Guideline 
that addresses contrast in visual presentations [3].  This was a great 
suggestion.

Thank you,
