From: Jan Richards <jan.richards@utoronto.ca>
Date: Fri, 05 Feb 2010 16:13:04 -0500
Message-ID: <4B6C89E0.2050509@utoronto.ca>
To: WAI-AUWG List <w3c-wai-au@w3.org>
CURRENT WORDING:
B.1.3.1 Automatic Accessible (WCAG Level A): If the *authoring tool* 
*automatically generates content*, then that *web content* meets *WCAG 
2.0* Level A prior to *publishing*. (Level A) [Implementing B.1.3.1]
Note 1: This success criterion (as well as B.1.3.2 and B.1.3.3) applies 
to the automated behavior specified by the authoring tool developer only 
when author(s) respond properly to any prompts.
Note 2: This success criterion (as well as B.1.3.2 and B.1.3.3) does not 
apply when actions of the author(s) prevent generation of accessible web 
content (e.g., the author(s) might set less strict preferences, ignore 
prompts for accessibility information, provide faulty accessibility 
information, write their own automated scripts, etc.).

PROPOSED WORDING (CHANGES IN CAPS):
B.1.3.1 Automatic Accessible (WCAG Level A): If the *authoring tool* 
*automatically generates content*, then that *web content* CONFORMS TO 
WCAG 2.0 Level A prior to publishing. (Level A) [Implementing B.1.3.1]
NOTE: This success criterion (as well as B.1.3.2 and B.1.3.3) ONLY 
applies to the automated behavior specified by the authoring tool 
developer. IT DOES NOT APPLY when actions of the author(s) prevent 
generation of accessible web content (e.g., the author(s) might set less 
strict preferences, ignore prompts for accessibility information, 
provide faulty accessibility information, write their own automated 
scripts, etc.).
