Hi Jutta,

Remember my example from yesterday

"JR: Imagine a clip-art management system that works as follows: it
stores jpgs in a folder along with a text document that includes an
index of the images as well as accessibility information (text labels
and long descriptions) for each image. When the author chooses to
"Insert Clip-Art" they choose from amongst the images and the authoring
tool automatically retrieves the accessibility information and adds it
to the image. I think this example should pass even though the storage
mechanism does not conform to WCAG, because when the system is used it
does not introduce accessibility problems."

Barry (and I believe Bob and Greg) have made the point that we need to 
be clear that the pre-authored content need not conform to WCAG until it 
is actually retrieved for use.
