Thanks for updating this!   The document is shaping up nicely I think..

A few questions following.. 

In the beginning of the document, under "decisions to make prior to testing", could additional guidance be given as to how to make the decisions indicated under points 1 and 2?  For point 1, where would this info come from (authoring tool developer, tester, others)?  Also, what if a tool satisfies some but not all level A, but a lot of level AA, etc. - how would this fit into the decision making process - could be "all over the map" when it comes to level definition..)?  For point 2, what is the meaning of "included" (included in the testing process.., or included from the defined subset mentioned later)?    Can the defined subset be null, or if only 1 of 10 web content technologies produced is tested for, is that sufficient?   Also, is the meaning of "by default" not requiring any author interaction to specify a web content technology, or something else?

Thanks and best wishes
