I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who was able to attend by phone or in person.  I think we made some great progress and some incredibly hard choices.

A huge thanks to Jan and Jeanne.  Jan for diligently driving the meetings and Jeanne for being so helpful in setting everything up and getting ramped up so quickly.

Thanks also to everyone on the phone who called in at such ridiculous hours.

Subject: proposed definition of an authoring tool

I multi-tasked and made an attempt at the definition of an authoring tool:

"ATAG 2.0 defines an authoring tool as any tool, components of a tool
or collection of software components that an author can interact with
to create, modify or construct Web content to be used by other
people. ATAG applies to the authoring choices the authoring tool
presents to the author and the authoring choices under the control of
the authoring tool.

This includes creating, modifying or choosing:
Scripts or applets
Non-Text elements"
