right - I think might end up in two columns or some such so that
frequent visitors don't have to sift and new people get the intro before
being totally overwhelmed by links they don't understand.

ah, then we should look at how to improve the wording here -- that
should be very clear on this page, I think!

I think we will want a separate page for "Using WCAG 1.0" or some such.
(These will all be different in WCAG 2.0 so we'll need  a separate page
for that.) I will add that to the list of pages and links here if all
agree...

good question - wonder about using acronym in the "official title" of a
doc - e.g., "Core Techniques for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines
1.0"

I think Charmane & Blossom will both have good perspectives on that --
let's talk about that at WSTF tonight. (Sorry we'll miss you, Carol.
Thanks for the comments to the list!)
