Hi all,

This proposal is a response to a discussion Alastair and I recently had about B.1.1.1 being a very low bar (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-au/2010OctDec/0097.html) in which Alastair suggested strengthening it.

The structure is similar to the checking requirement SC(was B.2.2.1)

PROPOSED WORDING:
=================
(was B.1.1.1) Accessible Content Possible (WCAG): If the authoring tool provides authors with the ability to add or modify web content so that a WCAG 2.0 success criterion is applicable, then authors can use the authoring tool to meet the success criterion.
The WCAG 2.0 Level A success criteria are met (Level A); or 
The WCAG 2.0 Level A and Level AA success criteria are met (Level AA); or 
The WCAG 2.0 Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA success criteria are met (Level AAA).


CURRENT WORDING:
================
(was B.1.1.1) Accessible Content Production (WCAG): Authors can use the authoring tool to produce accessible web content (WCAG): [Implementing B.2.1.1] 
The WCAG 2.0 Level A success criteria are met (Level A); or 
The WCAG 2.0 Level A and Level AA success criteria are met (Level AA); or 
The WCAG 2.0 Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA success criteria are met (Level AAA).
