A couple of quick and superficial suggestions for the HTM document:
 
1. Insert the word "descriptive" before the word "titles" in the Intent
section.
2. Change the title of the general technique from:
<current>
1. Associating a title with a Web page 
</current>
 
to
 
<proposed>
1. Associating a descriptive title with a Web unit
</proposed>
 
3. In G7, change "Web page" and "Web pages" to "Web unit" and "Web
units"
4. Also in G7, make sure the titles of the WCAG 2.0 docs reflect the
current titles-- I think one-word titles like "Introduction" and
"Glossary" would fail the "descriptive titles" test, and if I remember
right the titles now actually refer to WCAG 2.0.
5. Consider replacing examples 2-5 with examples of, e.g., Web
applications that dynamically generate descriptive titles as users move
through the application (<title>My Application: Step 4</title> rather
than either "My application" or "step 4" alone). Maybe another example
of a (user-requested!) pop-up with a descriptive title.
 
All I can think of for now. Hope it helps!

	Team B has the action item to come up with a revised description
of the How To Meet  info and techniques if we want to change to "Web
Units have descriptive titles". Can you propose how we would change the
current info? Brainstorming and examples would be a fine place to start.
Makoto, does JIS have any information that we could use for this?

	

	Thanks, Loretta
