I like this one best:

Methodology for Evaluating Website Accessibility Conformance  (MEWAC)

If we don't mention WCAG then we don't have to worry about 2.0 or 2.X.  In
the documentation we will have information on WCAG  so I don't think we need
it in the name  - accessibility is better.

Subject: [more] naming for "Methodology"

Dear group,

It seems that there is some support for:
  - Methodology for Assessing Website Conformity to WCAG 2.0

Some issues and questions raised include:
  - it does not include the word "accessibility" (though it is part of the
acronym WCAG, which we would likely expand in the title anyway);
  - should it be "WCAG 2.0" versus "WCAG 2" (to cover all 2.x versions);
  - should we use the term "assessing" versus "evaluation";
  - should we use the term "conformity" versus "conformance";
  - the title does not lend itself to a catchy acronym.

Here are some more ideas to play around with:
  - Methodology for Assessing Website Conformance to WCAG 2
  - Methodology for Evaluating Website Conformity to WCAG 2
  - Methodology for Evaluating Website Accessibility Conformance
  - Methodology for Conformance Evaluation of Websites for Accessibility
  - Conformance Evaluation of Websites for Accessibility
  - Conformance Evaluation of Websites to WCAG 2

The previous ideas are included below too. Happy brainstorming.

Best,
   Shadi
