WCAG 2.0 Working Draft Documents

WCAG 2.0

The main
WCAG 2.0
document applies to all Web content; it is not specific to any one 
technology.

WCAG 2.0 is organized around four design principles for Web accessibility:
Content must be perceivable
Interface elements in the content must be operable
Content and controls must be understandable
Content must be robust enough to work with current and future Web 
technologies

Under each principle are guidelines that define how the principle applies in 
a specific area.

Under each guideline are success criteria, definitions, benefits, and 
examples. Success criteria are testable statements to further define the 
guideline
and to determine conformance.

General Techniques for WCAG 2.0
applies to all Web content; it is not specific to any one technology. The 
General Techniques document provides implementation guidance, explanations,

Each technology-specific techniques document provides implementation 
guidance, preferred approaches, and markup examples for a specific Web 
technology.

Working Drafts, such as Sever-Side Scripting, SMIL, and SVG Techniques.)"
