draft revised ATAG2.0 test suite proposal - my "action item"

At the September 2005 AUWG f2f meeting, I took an action item to update
my ATAG2.0 Test Suite proposal (previously at [1]), in consideration of the
"reworking" of ATAG2.0, by the end of November 2005.    Thus, the latest 
(Version 1.1 [2]) is at:


Version 1.1 [2] supersedes Version 1.0 [1] .
For Version 1.1, I commented out references to older ATAG2.0
techniques information, since that information may be "outdated" at this 
time, but
intend to include the updated techniques references when the revised ATAG2.0
techniques are available.  I also attempted to align this ATAG2.0
test suite proposal to be consistent with relevant developments in W3C QA, 
other ATAG work, etc.

I feel that the issues raised in [1] are still relevant (although I've 
omitted the
explicit reference to a "WCAG Test Suite" per se in that issues list, in light
of recent WCAG testing developments).  Also, the following additional
issues regarding this test suite proposal may also be important to discuss:

(1) assessing the quality of reports/expertise of reviewers (quality 
control issue)?

(2) navigation/usability of test suite?

(3) possible use of test suite to determine extent of implementation of 
ATAG2.0 techniques?

Comments on this revised ATAG2.0 test suite proposal are welcome.   Perhaps 
this proposal could be
discussed at the December 2005 AUWG f2f meeting.   The purpose of this
proposal is to generate discussion on testing ATAG2.0, in order to 
determine next steps.

Thanks and best wishes
