    Sorry, that was not exactly the case. I probably did not explain myself 
properly, and I apologise for that. :-)

    I was asking you for some clarification about point # 1 (Evaluating a 
Web site using tools in different languages), in particular if you were 
volountarily referring to the 'general' case, and not just 'accessibility', 
given that point # 5's description specifically deals with accessibility 
issues (which, IMHO, could be extended to the general case too).

    I know and believe that EARL must be generic. Mine was just a question. :-)

    Also, I asked your opinion about site integrity (broken links and the 
like), particularly if it could fall into point #1 (I reckon it could also 
fall into use case # 5 if monitored over time): personally, that could be 
interesting for me as developer of ht://Check. My intention was to provide 
you with more examples and see if the cases I raised could fit into one or 
more of the existing categories you have carefully written.

    I apologise again for not having been clear enough with the private 
mail. Thank you.
