Per discussion on teleconf call

The editorial comments on the surveys were made (people - if you name is
below - please go into the survey (which is reopened) and delete your
editorial comments so that it is less confusing. You can check the new draft
to be sure they are made to your satisfaction before deleting your comment
(or amending it)

Also per telecon call, the bulk examples etc were also deleted and moved to
the UNDERSTANDING document.  The WCAG 1.0 section was reduced to 2 sentences
which point elsewhere. And the How to reference section was removed.   The
glossary was also reduced to just the two definitions that changed. 

It is now just 5-7 pages depending on how you print.

EVERYONE - The proposal as now edited is at


Comments on Conformance Intro.

Andi  - I think new wording from commenter addresses your comment in Q2
"Comments on Conformance Intro."

Comments on "Technology independence" (section)

Michael - edits made 



Changed "

as long as the technologies are supported by accessible user agents,
including assistive technologies." to "

as long as the accessibility-enabled technologies relied upon are supported
by accessible user agents, including assistive technologies."

 - I don't agree that "on-screen and alternative keyboards, single switches,
voice recognition, and a wide variety of input and output devices" are "user
agents".  I suggest deleting the second paragraph on how WCAG uses the term
user agents. The glossary entry should be enough.



Paragraph removed. 


Comments on "Choosing accessibility-enabled Web technologies (AeWT)"


- 'most all'  changed to   'almost all' 



-          transition there now?

-          Don't think we can delete P1(no intro to AeWT if we do) but we
shortened it to remove redundancy.  Ok now?

-          Changed "provisions' to 'features'



-          "AT" removed from end

Comments on "Established lists of accessibility-enabled Web technologies"


1)  Changed "established lists of accessible Web technologies" to
"established lists of accessibility-enabled Web technologies"


2) Changed "

The non-accessibility-enabled Web technologies do not interfere with (break
or block access to) the content" to "

The other (non-accessibility-enabled) Web technologies do not interfere with
(break or block access to) the conforming content"



-          AWT changed to AeWT



-          Gregg editorial changes were made. 

Comments on "CC-2 Minimum Conformance" (Conformance Criterion 2)

Bruce - we do have Single-A later but not in title since this is different
than others. This is minimum level which is more important.

Cynthia - Gregg edits made.

Comments on "CC-6 Content negotiation" (Conformance Criterion 6)

Andi - "accessible" and "fully-accessible" have been removed.

Comments on "Conformance exceptions" (section)

Loretta - typo fixed. 

Comments on "Conformance Notes" (section)

Andi  - Supplemental information has been edited.  Make sense now?   (think
