Hi Tim,

Good points....

NEW PROPOSED wording:

Relationship to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)

ATAG 2.0 is intended to be used in conjunction with WCAG 2.0 or similar 
Web content accessibility guidance (e.g., WCAG 1.0, regulations that 
include WCAG 2.0, etc.).

The relationship is as follows:
- The normative requirements of ATAG 2.0 have been formulated to apply 
to many different types of authoring tools that in turn may produce a 
range of Web content technologies.
- ATAG 2.0 points to WCAG in order to define the ATAG 2.0 concept of 
"accessible authoring practices", which authoring tools are required to 
support in various ways.
- The normative requirements of WCAG are themselves not 
technology-specific. However, specific informative guidance for 
satisfying the success criteria for particular Web content technologies 
are provided in separate documents.
- ATAG 2.0 Conformance Claims are supported by WCAG conformance claims 
for examples of Web content produced by the authoring tool (e.g., 
samples of automatically-generated content)




Cheers,
Jan
