Hello Andrew and the list,

Here are some corrections and suggestions for the document.


At the bottom of the paragraph: "anumber of the items", probably "a
number of the items".

Benefits matix:

You've done a good job. It sounds good with JAWS but why and empty row
at the top of the table?

- Improve usability for non-disabled visitors:

At the bottom of the firs paragraph, "the following the guidelines",
probably "the following guidelines".

First main bullet, "finding (or refinding) the item they wanted.", i
think you want to say "not finding et refinding..." or a bette wording,
but the idea is negative.

Second main bullet, "In some situations glare on a screen may make
seeing video, or even text-based content, difficult so having content
that can be rendered with a voice synthesizer can be beneficial.", I
do'nt understand who will use a voice synthesizer, disabed persons or
others, this apendix target others.

Last main bullet, "Contrasting colours for page background and text make
for easier reading - dark text on a light background is usually the best
combination.", i disagre with the last part of the sentece. In my
experience, atleast 50% of visually impaired pesons prefer light text on
a dark background for reading on a cctv (video magnifyer). I suggest to
drop this part of the sentence.

- Reduce site maintenance:

First paragraph, first sentence, "applying design techniques that can
reduce these costs a strategic move.", probably "applying design
techniques that can reduce these costs is a strategic move."  

The bullet begining by XML, i suggest to add XHTML int this list like

Address server-load:

First main bullet, "will be cached locally ofn the requesters machine",
replace by "will be cached locally on the requesters machine"

Objet : update to aux benefits

An updated Aux Benefits appendix has been posted

This version has incorporated a (hopefully accessible) matrix of
benefits along with some additional benefits. Please note that some
benefits still appear in the text as WCAG actions - the table shows the
correct relationship.

All further comments gratefully received.
