Hi Michael, gang,

THANK YOU for doing this.  Here are my thoughts on reviewing these 
documents (and particularly the diff document, which is incredibly helpful):

  * In the first paragraph of Key Terms, you note the "set of documents"
    substitution (important intro text, which I think we forgot to
    survey - but isn't a problem that we didn't survey it). I see from
    proposal #6 at
    that we aren't consistent in "set of *NON-WEB *documents" (vs. just
    "set of documents").  I'm not sure exactly how to best clean that
    up.  Should we use "set of non-web documents" in the intro paragraph
    of Key Terms, as well as in the H3 tag "Set of non-web documents"? 
    Should we put "non-web" in parenthesis here, as i: "Set of (non-web)
    documents" in both the first paragraph & also the H3 tag?

  * Also, speaking of that first paragraph of Key Terms, I wonder
    whether we should say anything IN THAT PARAGRAPH about the fact that
    do not have a "set of software" equivalent; or whether we should
    simply leave the reader to discover that later.

    Alternately, perhaps this might go below the "One example of a set
    of documents" text in the "set of documents" key term.  E.g.: "Note:
    the WCAG2ICT Task Force has not yet developed an equivalent
    alternative to "set of web pages" in software.

  * Editorial: Note 2 of "set of documents": should the final word
    "documents" be plural or singular?  Perhaps it should be
    "...evaluated as any other individual document is evaluated"?

  * Shouldn't ALL of the "Additional guidance" blocks be: "Additional
    guidance when applying {Guideline | Success Criterion} [x.y{.z}] to
    Electronic *Non-Web* Documents and SoftwareAspects of Products:" ?? 
    I thought that was part of the global search & replace.

  * The problem I found last night (along with the proposed fix for it)
    about 1.4.2 & our failure to do the "web page" substitution isn't
    captured in these drafts.  Can you please add that in?  It should be
    part of the survey for Thursday, and I seriously doubt it won't get

  * Noticed a bad link by accidentally clicking on Understanding Success
    Criterion 1.4.3 in Understanding WCAG 2.0
    under SC1.4.3:
    Are these links supposed to work? /Understanding Success Criterion
    1.4.6 Contrast (Enhanced)
    is also bad (same SC)

  * I think the Editor's Note for SC 3.2.4 should also mention another
    key part of the back-up plan: that we would also have to say that
    the WCAG2ICT TF does not yet have guidance for how to apply this SC
    to software.  WCAG WG should have that info before them as part of
    their review this Thursday.

Other than those few things, this looks very good!  Thank you again for 
all of your hard work.
