My editorial comments _..._ injection X...X omission. ?question?


Assistive Technology

**Any item, piece of equipment, or product
_system,_ ?software? [not clear to me what a product system is]
whether acquired commercially off the shelf, modified, or customized, that 
is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of 
individuals with disabilities.


Conformance

**A product or service that satisfies all the requirements of ?a? 
specification.
?a? ?any? ?some?

?Even if there are none?


Informative

** Information in a specification that is not required for conformance but 
that contributes to the _understanding_, correct use and implementation of 
the specification.
_Informative is used in contrast with Normative_


Linearized content

** A presentation that arranges web content in a sequential order. 
Linear_i_zation changes side-by-side di_s_played content into a one column 
format. This should be in a logical reading order.


Normative

** A cr_i_XeXterion that must be satisfied for conformance with a 
specification.


Meta data

**Data that describes and/or explains other data. Including items such as 
authorship, key words, character set, publication dates and language. The 
inclusion of meta data in a web document helps indexing, searching 
processes and semantic analysis. _Many markup language elements have 
attributes that detail their
meaning._


Normative

** A cr_i_XeXterion that must be satisfied for conformance with a 
specification.


Render

** Transformation of machine-readable information into a form perceivable 
and usable to a human user. Document markup such as HTML or CSS may be 
incomprehensible to the human user, but a user agent may transform it into 
a meaningful form. For example a X<strong>X _<em>_HTML element could 
indicates that emphasis is intended. The user agent may emphasiXsX_z_e the 
content responding to CSS directions by changing font or tone of voice.


Web _A_XaXccessibility

** Web accessibility means that the Web is designed so that people with 
disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with it 
effectively,

Xas well asX
It also means that people with disabilities can create and contribute 
content to the Web.
