Here's my draft of the guide doc for GL 2.5 Level 2 SC 3. I ran into a few
issues:

- I had trouble with the scenario of modifying data in a remote data store
because that doesn't seem like a serious issue to me. You can just modify
the data again if you get it wrong. Should we propose removing this phrase
from the SC?
- I had trouble with the second bullet "Actions are checked for errors
before going on to the next step in the process". See notes in the draft.
- Some of the general techniques from the harvest don't seem to apply:
  a. Dividing processes into steps and allowing forward and backward nav.
<als: this could be a technique for the second bullet if it were reworded
something like: Information can be checked by users for mistakes at interim
steps in the process.>
  b.Return a new form with only the incorrect fields available <als: This
doesn't seem to apply to this success criteria which is about user
"mistakes" not user "errors".>
  c. Programmatically provide supplemental information - tooltips with
additional info or help <als: this goes with the Level 3 SC>

(See attached file: Guide to Guideline 2_5 Level 2 Success Criterion 3.htm)
