Bcc to ERT group for information.

Hi Vicente, this is interesting work. I think that you have misinterpreted  
some of the WCAG - for example "No abbreviation or acronym should be  
defined more than once" is not what the relevant checkpoint means.

Unfortunately (from my perspective) the WCAG group has not been very open  
to helping clarify how the WCAG should be interpreted. I hope that this  
will change somewhat, as work like yours starts to make it important.

You should consider announcing it to the Evaluation and Repair Tools  
working group.

Best regards

Chaals
