Hello all,
>2. Understanding WCAG 2.0
>* http://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/
>Focusing on:
>* Introduction section: 
>  - How understandable is it? 
I am not really familiar with the word "write-up", what does it mean in the context of this document? 

One comment on the accessibility of this document:
It is very long! My screen reader says it has more than 700 headings and as many links. I suppose it is not easy to scroll, in particular for people who have difficulties scrolling. 

>3. Checklist for WCAG 2.0 / Appendix B: Checklist (Non-Normative)
>* http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-WCAG20-20060427/appendixB.html
>Focusing on:
>- Presentation, including grouping and color

For users who cannot see the screen, it is difficult to understand how the document (the list of success criteria) is presented. There should be aditional information explaining how the list is structured. 

One suggestion: if you want to review a web site only according to level 1 or 2, is it planned to have a checklist classified by priority? 

>- Introduction: Does it place the document well within the context of the
>other documents?

There should be a link to the conformance section of the WCAG, so that the user can find what is necessary on his web site to meet level X of conformance. Or the section explaining how a site can conform should be placed somewhere in the document. 
For people knowing the checklist of WCAG 1.0, better explain the difference. Moving from "Pass, fail, non applicable" to "true or false". 

Regards
Sylvie
