I write webpages for University students and others at at a high 
language level, where I use foreign language terms, there are links to 
a glossary of word definitions, but I cannot reproduce the entire site 
which currently passes Priority Three into simple language for a 
secondary school child. How can any complex subject or University level 
website comply with this demand to bring down the English language to 
the level of secondary school student.

You are asking the entire web to become authors for those who do not 
comprehend English, this is the lowest standard bringing down academic 
values in an effort to enforce mediocrity.

3.1.5 Reading Level: When text requires reading ability more advanced 
than the lower secondary education level, supplemental content  or an 
alternate version   is available that does not require reading ability 
more advanced than the lower secondary education level. (Level 
AAA)Understanding Success

Yours Faithfully
