A.3.3.1 - OK with your responses

JR: Great!

A.3.6.1 - 1st bullet - I still propose replacement text "authoring tool allows the
author to set display settings.."
that I sent in my earlier message - I think it is clearer and places the onus on
the authoring tool not on authors.


2nd bullet - still think that "without affecting" and "to be published" may be somewhat
subjective.. can we clarify exactly what we mean by these words?

JR: How about: without modifying the content being edited?

A.3.7.1 - new item: do we need a definition (or clarification) of "pre-existing" (relative
to what (time) reference?

JR: Perhaps "separately available user agent?" - which would still need a definition - perhaps something like "a user agent that is made available as a user agent, not just in the context of the authoring tool preview."

1st bullet - I still think we need to clarify "makes use of" (language seems somewhat fuzzy..?)
how about "the preview renders web content using a pre-existing user agent" - I think this is

JR:   OK perhaps "The preview renders web content using a separately available user agent;."

2nd bullet - should refer to the latest approved W3C UAAG Recommendation (need to clarify language
to make this clear..?  I think it's confusing to say "any normative version" (there could be multiple
such versions.. authoring tool consistency/interoperability issue..?

JR: OK, UAAG 1.0

3rd bullet - unclear what you mean by "essentially" a user agent?   What specific differences
are there between a preview and a user agent as defined in UAAG?

JR: Not sure where this comes from.
