Hi All,

In addition to my previous email, I don't think either of the suggested examples are ideal.

I'd like to suggest the 'Analysis' layout, however, categorised by conformance level rather than POUR.

In practice, web practitioners want to know:
A: which guidelines apply to my work; and
B: which guidelines do I need to satisfy to meet A or AA etc.

In my experience, web practitioners aren't really thinking about POUR on a day to day basis.

Regards

Lisa

Denis has gotten feedback to use the POUR principles as the organizing theme rather that the conformance Levels. As we rebuild the tables, the question has arisen of how much information to put in the sections.
