Hi all,

In my last email 
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-au/2010AprJun/0001.html) I 
mentioned knock-on changes in the
"Conformance" section.

Basically, the "'Included' and 'Excluded' Technologies" section has been 
reworked into "Web Content Technologies Produced". This section is 
normative.

PROPOSED TEXT:
==============

Web Content Technologies Produced:

Authoring tools conform to ATAG 2.0 with respect to the production of 
specific web content technologies (e.g., full Level A conformance with 
respect to the production of XHTML 1.0, Partial Level AA Conformance: 
Content Production with respect to the production of SVG 1.1).

If an authoring tool is capable of producing multiple web content 
technologies, then the conformance may include only a subset of these 
technologies as long as the subset includes any technologies that the 
developer either sets for automatically-generated content or sets as the 
default for author-generated content. The subset may include "interim" 
formats that are not intended for publishing to end users, but this is 
not required.

When Success Criterion B.2.1.1 refers to web technologies for which the 
authoring tool provides support for the production of accessible 
content, it is referring to this subset.

NOTES ON NEW WORDING:
=====================
- includes examples of how conformance with respect to certain web 
content technologies works: "(e.g., full Level A conformance with 
respect to the production of XHTML 1.0, Partial Level AA Conformance: 
Content Production with respect to the production of SVG 1.1)"
- note 1 is removed - it just restates info in the definition.
- note 2's content is integrated
- note 3's content is integrated and tightened
- the last paragraph explains how to connect the subset of technologies 
with B.2.1.1.


CURRENT TEXT:
=============

"Included" and "Excluded" Technologies:

"Included" web content technologies are those that the authoring tool 
conforms to ATAG 2.0 while producing. "Excluded" web content 
technologies are any other technologies that the authoring tool is 
capable of producing, but that the authoring tool does not conform to 
ATAG 2.0 while producing.

     * Note 1: Web content technologies may be a combination of 
constituent web content technologies. For example, an image technology 
(e.g., PNG) might be listed together with a markup technology (e.g., 
HTML) since web content in the markup technology is used to make web 
content in the image technology accessible (e.g., a PNG graph is made 
accessible using an HTML table).
     * Note 2: The included technologies will always include any web 
content technologies that are selected by the authoring tool for either 
automatic content generation or as the default technology for 
author-generated content.
     * Note 3: The included technologies may include other web content 
technologies that authors can produce using the authoring tool, 
including interim formats that are not intended for publishing, but this 
is not required.
