Lexicon Task Force,

Now that the new WAI site is out, I'm eager to post some of our new resources, including the lexicon/glossary! :)

I incorporated the revisions from a previous EOWG teleconference[1] into the draft version of the Lexicon/Glossary online at:

The changes are listed at:

Most of the changes are minor formatting. The major issue is the introduction, which I cut considerably. Questions for discussion on this list:
* What needs to be said? Is anything important missing?
* Is there any reason to say something like: "A primary purpose is to aid people translating WAI documents." ?
* Is there any reason to say something like: "Additional words may be added in the future." ?
* On the one hand, it seems we should add a word to the first sentence, such as: "This glossary clarifies the meaning of [some\selected\25\key\...] words used in WAI documents." On the other hand, it's obvious that it's not a comprehensive list, so why clutter the sentence with another word?

Please reply to the Lexicon list, this week if possible.
