Below are my rough notes for Tuesday's meeting. Please flesh them out.

Regarding the next joint face-to-face meeting at WWW9, I have had to 
decide between sending Chris Ridpath or going myself. There are two 
conflicting events that at least one of us has to attend. I decided 
that it was more important that Chris should attend the ERT meetings. 
Consequently, Chris Ridpath, Jan Richards and Ian Graham will be 
attending the meetings on behalf of the ATRC and I will be in Ottawa 
at a meeting on Parliament Hill.

I will be raising the tentative proposal that we investigate merging 
the two working groups to the Coordination Group on Tuesday, since 
the techniques we are working on are very similar. This will likely 
come up as an agenda item during the face-to-face meeting. What are 
people's thoughts on this?

Thanks Jutta

Review Action Items:
Nothing further completed

Jan will post a diagram of his proposal
Heather proposed that a better way to encourage the author to input 
meaningful equivalent text is to provide a prominent text field in 
the image insertion dialog and back this up with a blue underline for 
cases when the dialog is not used to paste in the image. There was 
general consensus that this was a good approach.

Charles: Dropping the word prompt means 3.1 is not needed as it is 
covered by 4.0.
Charles proposed dropping 3.1
Heather agreed with Charles.
Jan, Marjolein, Jutta, Frank and Gregory disagreed.
Gregory: The onus is on the developers who objected to the guideline 
to propose an alternative.
Jutta; The Guideline document at the moment is contradictory and 
confusing as it relates to the term prompt and the onus is on us to 
Charles will propose an alternative definition for prompt and send it 
to the list.
