Hi everyone,

Sorry I have not been active lately on the list. As some of you may know, I
left Oracle toward the end of December last year, and I am now working at a
company called Workday, which was started by the former PeopleSoft founders.

Since I'm now working in a company that is not a W3C member and working in
more of a fast-paced start-up environment, I have not yet been able to
resolve my participation in the task force. I am glad that Don Raikes is
participating on the task force from Oracle.

Attached are my comments on the latest draft. In general, I think the draft
needs to take into account more actual examples in the language and refer
back to WCAG on conformance claims.

Thanks,
Amy
