Well, there are a set of requirements and a guideline for comprehensibility.
These will vary somewhat from documents to multimedia (for example) but they
are likely to be more general than markup-language-specific topics...

  Kynn,

  	I was watching the techniques to see where I could be useful, and I'm not
  facile with coding languages enough to be useful there. But I can talk
  about using clear and simple language and using appropriate graphics
  techniques. (I still think the guidelines should at least mention using two
  sizes of graphic for a page, a small one that loads fast, and a large one
  the user can click on as desired ...
