Thanks for your good work.  I agree that it would be good to publish the
techniques with the Guidelines, to show that each of the success criteria
is implementable by a sufficiently large number of authoring tools.
Some comments follow:


Perhaps in the "Introduction", first paragraph, should add after the
phrase "after following these techniques", "and thus this document is 
after ..., for emphasis, since the preceding point is an important
factor in making this document informative.

The "Glossary" in the Techniques seems to duplicate exactly that in the 
unless I missed something?
If this is the case, would it be appropriate to just reference the 
Guidelines Glossary, like
the Guidelines success criteria are referenced (and delete the explicit 
Glossary in
the Techniques)?  This would keep maintenance
of the Glossary simpler (not having to update it in two places - Guidelines
and ?).
MINOR NOTE:  I got slightly different formatting for the diagrams in
the Glossary in the Techniques than in the Guidelines - Interesting!).

There are no General Techniques for the Checkpoints in Part B, like there
are for Part A.  Is this by design or deliberate?


In A.1.1, perhaps add "meet" (missing word?) between "serve to" and 
"success criteria"

In A.1.4, "to" instead of "too" (typo?) in "Applicability"

In B.2.2-2, "advisory" comes before "sufficient" techniques.  Perhaps
"sufficient" should always come first if possible?

Thanks and best wishes
