Shadi,
a couple of minor points:

in 1.1. when we say "Web accessibility can be viewed and defined in 
different ways ..."; later on, the phrase "or Section 508" was cut. The 
whole sentence should be

Web accessibility can be viewed and defined in different ways [ 
Brajnik08 ]. One way is to consider whether a web page/website is 
conformant to a set of requirements such as those defined by WCAG 2.0 or 
by Section 508. ....

In 3.4 change Sucess --> Success

Thank you for the good work!


   Giorgio Brajnik
