How WCAG 2.0 Differs from WCAG 1.0 (section "WCAG 2.0 Supporting Material" to end)

About "How WCAG 2.0 Differs from WCAG 1.0" [1].

==WCAG 2.0 Supporting Material==

"Techniques provide ... examples..." might be clear as "Each technique 
provides ... examples..." or "The techniques provide ... examples..." to 
indicate that they are actual existing techniques not just a general 
concept.

In "customizable quick reference that you can use to create a short 
high-level checklist or long detailed checklists" could mention 
"selecting by technology, priority, or types of technique".

The link "See The WCAG 2.0 Documents..." is misleading. Better "See 
overview of the WCAG 2.0 Documents..."

==Section "Changes in Requirements"==

Perhaps say that some of the criteria in WCAG 1.0 have gone and new ones 
have been included. It might be obvious to us but not to others. Some 
have changed priority level. Others have been clarified. All have 
changed in some way or other.

Perhaps a clearer title would be "Different and Changed Requirements."

Maybe the three links are unnecessary here, one would be sufficient. Use 
the space to give more detail on what the differences are.

==Transitioning from WCAG 1.0 to WCAG 2.0==

This section heading isn't really a difference between the versions. 
Perhaps a heading more in the scope of this document would be "How the 
differences affect existing sites". Maybe even "Conclusion: How the 
differences affect existing sites."

regards,

Alan
