Hi Greg,

ATAG 1.0 went through before the CR process was instituted.

There is information here:
http://www.w3.org/TR/test-methodology/

Here are some tests that were put together for WCAG 2.0:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/tests/

As you can see, the tests are generally marked up in XML of some kind. My question was really, what format makes the most sense?

Cheers,
Jan

Are there useful examples that exist for other standards. (ATAG 1.0 perhaps) so we could have an idea of the form this document should take?

Regards,

Greg

Hi all,

Thinking ahead, ATAG 2.0 is going to need conformance testing support, which will likely include writing test cases.

It would be good to select a format for those test cases that is compatible with range of testing systems, whether open source or proprietary. 

If anyone has suggestions - please either send them to the list or to me directly (so I can suggest them anonymously). 

And of course, any other ideas people have about testing would be much appreciated. We'll have a spot for this on Monday's agenda.

Cheers,
Jan
