Drop both Content and Site and leave it as "W3C Web Accessibility
Guidelines" - that gives you a lot of flexibility later on.

Subject: renaming the guidelines (issue #3 from yesterday's telecon)


The framework of the names for the WAI set of guidelines was determined
by the Coordnation Group. They chose, "W3C <working group chosen
phrase> Accessibility Guidelines."
 
There was much discussion about the terms "site" and
"content." It was felt that "site" implies server issues.
After much discussion it was felt that the guidelines address making
"content" accessible and therefore it would be appropriate to use in
the title. However, it might not be as marketable as "site" We all
agreed to send the following two choices to the list for comment:
 
1.  W3C Web Site Accessibility Guidelines 
2.  W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 

thoughts?
