Per discussion at yesterday's telecon [1] I have updated the working draft 
[2], open issues list [3], and change log [4].  Please read this draft 
before next week's meeting on 18 January 2001.  This is the draft we hope 
to publish as a public working draft the week of 22 January 2001.

Note that since this is a working draft we don't expect to have consensus 
on everything in this draft.  However, if there is something major that you 
believe needs to be addressed before this is published, please speak up.

Also note that we will not link to techniques from this draft nor will we 
include priorities.  This is explained in the introduction.

The changes made to this draft are:
       Reworded Guideline 1 to include capabilities of user agents (as 
well as devices).
       Added a checkpoint to Guideline 1 that addresses graceful 
transformation. Related: open issue #25 and open issue #38.
       Added a checkpoint to Guideline 4 that addresses selecting 
languages that follow these guidelines, followed by a separate checkpoint 
that addresses using the chosen langauge in accordance with its specification.
       Dropped the word "navigate" from the text of Guideline 2.
       Removed the note in checkpoint 3.6 that discussed only expanding 
the first occurence of an abbreviation of acronym. This is open issue #39.
       Added supplementary text to checkpoint 3.6 (define key terms, 
abbreviations, etc.)
       Deleted all of the @@'s. Several in glossary that said "need 
definition" replaced with "Not yet defined."
