To: "HTML WG" <public-html@w3.org>

A few more items for consideration:

- Consider clarifying  what "TAG" means in the introduction by saying
"Technical Architecture Group (TAG)" or using the <abbr> element.
Linking to the findings would be helpful too so folks don't have to
search for them.

- In section 2.1. consider changing "browsers" to "user agents". Not
everyone uses a browser.

- In section 3.4, what is the logic behind saying "when possible" in
the statement, "Design features for universal access. This does not
mean that features should be omitted entirely if not all users can
fully make use of them, but alternate mechanisms should be provided
when possible."  ?

The HTML 5 working group charter, says "The HTML Working Group will
cooperate with the Web Accessibility Initiative to ensure that the
deliverables _will satisfy accessibility requirements_."

- In section 3.7 the example "The b and i elements are widely used" is
based on the disputed "cow paths" principle. Consider removing it.

Best Regards,
Laura
