Hi,

On the last call I was assigned to review A.1.4 (see message:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-au/2006JanMar/0032.html). 
Here are my thoughts so far:

----------
IN GUIDELINES: 
http://www.w3.org/WAI/AU/2005/WD-ATAG20-20051216/WD-ATAG20-20051216.html#che
ck-tool-sep-display-prefs

"Allow the display preferences for the editing view to be changed without
affecting the document markup. [Priority 1]."

Suggested rewording was available at:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-au/2006JanMar/att-0027/12_2005_c
omment_responses.html

<cite>
A.1.4 "Allow the display preferences for the editing view to be changed
without affecting the document markup."  By saying "Allow" this implies that
the display preferences will change the document markup view and you must
provide an option to prevent that from happening.  The language should be
"*Ensure* the document markup view is not changed when the display
preferences for the editing view are changed."

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-au/2006JanMar/0023.html
Not exactly - it means don't change the markup of the content to accomplish
particular display preferences. I could see rewording it as: "Ensure changes
to the display preferences of editing views do not affect the content being
edited." 
</cite>

I agree with the proposal to change the checkpoint text with: "Ensure
changes to the display preferences of editing views do not affect the
content being edited."

----------
RATIONALE: 
"Authors may require a set of display preferences to view and control the
document that is different from the display styles that they want to define
for the published document (e.g. a particular text-background combination
that differs from the published version)."

I confirm that the rationale text is good.

----------
SUCCESS CRITERIA:
"The author must be able to configure the presentation settings of editing
views without affecting the Web content being edited."

The terms in success criteria and guidelines should be armonized. In the
guideline we said "changes to the display preferences", and in the success
criteria we said "presentation settings".

----------
TECHNIQUES:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/AU/2006/techs/tech1.html#check-tool-sep-display-prefs

Technique A.1.4-1.1 [Sufficient]: ok
Providing the author with the ability to change  fonts, colors, sizing
(zoom), etc. within editing views (or by changing the platform display
settings), independently of the ability to control the markup that is
actually produced.

Technique A.1.4-1.2 [Advisory]: ok
For authoring tools that offers a "rendered view" of a document, such as a
browser preview mode, providing an editing view that has a presentation that
can be controlled independently of the rendered view.

Technique A.1.4-1.3 [Advisory]: minor rewording
Allowing the author to specify a preferred style sheet that will override
the "published" style of the document in the editing view.
[i change the word "local" due that a preferred stylesheet could be also
choose from an external css source]

Technique A.1.4-1.4 [Advisory]: ok
Allowing the author to create audio style sheets using a graphical
representation rather than an audio one.

Cheers.
