Re: Reminder: Call for Review: ATAG *Last Call* Working Draft

Message-Id: <BF278026-DDAF-4AFE-BC1D-93295B3C621B@cs.man.ac.uk>
To: "EOWG (E-mail)" <w3c-wai-eo@w3.org>
I have some initial structural comments about <http://www.w3.org/TR/ 
ATAG20/>.

1. In the Table of Contents (TOC), there are two items "abstract" and  
"status of this document", but these two items link to paragraphs  
above the TOC and others link to paragraphs  below the TOC. I think  
this is a bit confusing. I wonder if it will be better to take out  
"abstract" and "status of the document" from the TOC.
2. In the introduction, it says "The term "authoring tools" has a  
specific definition in ATAG 2.0", why not include the definition  
there? It's a short and important definition, but the user has to  
click on a link to reach to that short description.
3. To reach WCAG 2.0 from notes section, one needs to click on three  
different links. I wonder if this could be improved.

I haven't finished reading the document so probably I will have some  
more comments later.

Regards,
Yeliz.
