Hi Chris,

It would be excellent if these results can be generated automatically,
we could then quite quickly built an EARL test suite on top of the WCAG
tests (we would still need to check each entry though, but that still
saves us having to generate each EARL result manually).

Anyway, it's great to know that we *could* do this, but I don't
recommend you go ahead with this until we resolve some of the
outstanding issues. For example the "xpath" or "line" attributes you are
using.

Regards,
  Shadi

Subject: Locating In EARL Example



Here is a link to an HTML file that shows how we may identify an 
accessibility error using EARL:
http://checker.atrc.utoronto.ca/test1-earl.html

Note that the EARL is not yet correct! We still need to work on getting
it 
right and this EARL will not validate. However this is a concrete
example 
and I hope that we can improve the EARL to make it right.

The example uses the accessibility test that is part of the WAI test
suite:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test1.html

I can generate these EARL example files for all the other tests in the
suite 
but would like to get comments first.

Is this format usable by most people? What other information would be 
helpful?

Comments appreciated.

Cheers,
Chris
