Thanks for doing this - I'm being put on another project full-time applying WCAG2.0 level A evaluation criteria to electronic patient records (in support of healthcare IT), so my time for writing ATAG2.0 tests will be more limited, but I'll try to write some if I can..

Thanks and best wishes

Subject: Writing ATAG Tests - Update

I updated the testing reference document with all the tests Jan & Tim wrote last week.  I encourage everyone to write tests, as this is a group effort and will go faster with everyone working on it.  We want to finish the tests before we enter Candidate Recommendation, which W3C now encourages all working groups to do, to speed progress to Recommendation.  The good news is that we have over 1/3 coverage of all the success criteria - I provided a list at the bottom of this email of what is done effective today.

I encourage you to look at the definitions and procedures document that Jan created and I adapted to keep as a reference. This will save you time in creating the tests, as you can simply refer to them.  They each have an anchor if you want to link directly to them.

Useful definitions and procedures:

The list of completed tests is at:

Please read the existing tests to get a feel for the language and style. 
  Send a message to the list when you pick out a success criterion you want to write.
