This is a short contribution to the RDWG Symposium on Text Customization for Readability.

It discusses the similarity of the guidelines for different audiences, even when the reasons for the guidelines are different. Drawing on work for The Open University website and the Design to Read project, I suggest that if we focus on the similarities of needs, we might find that it is easier to argue for a common core of requirements for text customization.
