 Hello Shadi,

The answer to you is in the yellow box from the top of that WebAIM link. I can sell WebAIM check list or WAI WCAG 1.0 checklist to any middle to low level manager. But I can not do it with How to Meet WCAG 2.0.

Quick tips to make accessible website come in very handy http://www.w3.org/WAI/quicktips/ Consider the checklist to be extended quicktips. I would suggest a simple checklist to be made for WCAG 2.0 as well.

Anna
