Hi group,

As per my action item from the last teleconference here you have a draft response for the WCAG WG on the 80 characters per line issue.

Keep in mind that this is supposed to be a response to their last message:

[http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Mar/0092.html]

Please let me know if it properly reflects the group view on the matter.


****** DRAFT RESPONSE ******

Dear WCAG WG,

After a closer review of this issue from the ERT WG [1] we came to the conclusion that this Requirement can be properly tested using manual procedures, so the problem is not with the Requirement, but with the associated techniques, more concretely with C20 [2], the examples and the test procedure proposed in there.

We think the aforementioned technique need further clarification and refinement, so we will keep looking for its advance and may be commenting on it in the future.

The group doesn't think any additional change to the associated Success Criterion is needed.

Thanks again for your hard work on this,
 CI on behalf of the ERT WG
