In Intent 3.1.2, the first para is particularly unfathomable:
'The intent of this Success Criterion is to ensure that user agents can
correctly present content written in multiple languages and so that assistive
technologies that helps users understand text use appropriate language-specific
knowledge and resources.. This applies to graphical browsers as well as screen
readers, braille displays, and other voice browsers..

Proposed Change:
Interpunction might be a good idea :-)

================================
Response from the Working Group
================================

We have revised the intent as follows:

The intent of this Success Criterion is to ensure that user agents can
correctly present content written in multiple languages. This makes it
possible for user agents and assistive technologies to present content
according to the  presentation and pronunciation rules for that
language. This applies to graphical browsers as well as screen
readers, braille displays, and other voice browsers.
