Hi Sueann,

Thanks.

I agree that our conformance claim language should not depart from WCAG2.0 unless necessary, so I will take another look. To help me in doing this, can you specify:


(1)    If there is anything in particular that we DO say that you don't think should be there.

(2)    If there is anything we DON'T say that you think we are missing.

Cheers,
Jan

Subject: Review of ATAG responses to IBM comments


Hello,

Overall the responses seem reasonable. I do have a concern with one of the blocking issues raised on the conformance claim.  Why is ATAG not using the same or  very similar conformance claim from WCAG 2.0?   Given that's language people are now familiar with, wouldn't it make sense to be consistent with that language?
