Hi, I'm starting work on my second action item from
Monday September 12 WCAG Team C teleconference, and am
using the Guide Document Template [1] as a reference.
I have a few questions on some of the instructions/terms
of this template:

(1) Are "key terms" restricted to terms already found in the
WCAG Glossary (as is implied) or can terms not currently
  in the Glossary but possibly important to understanding the
success criterion be also included in this section?

(2) What is the meaning of "background information" in
"Intent of this SC" section of template?   What kind of
background information?   Is there an example of such
background information for a specific success criterion?

(3) What is the scope/purpose of "Related Resources" Section?
Related in what sense/context?   Can these
resources be those listed with documented techniques or should
they be other resources not found with a specific technique?
   What criterion would be used to list a
resource in the "Related Resources" Section?   (NOTE: "background
  information" is listed again in this section, as it is also in the "Intent"
section - duplication?)

I would really appreciate any answers to these questions.

Thanks and best wishes
Tim Boland NIST

PS1: I think it would be really helpful to me to have a complete example of
a Guide Document for a specific success criterion as an illustration..

PS2: I have previously raised the issue of exactly how an option would
be "deemed sufficient" (in "Techniques for Addressing.." section), but
any guidance would be welcomed..
