Hello all,

The 26 July 2001 Working Draft of WCAG 2.0 is available for review.  There 
are a lot of changes...we've been a busy crew since March when we published 
our last draft.

Note that this is an interim draft since I still have work to do on 
3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, and 4.4.  There is a list of other "to do's" 
in the change log that I have already identified for the next version.  I 
hope to publish again either this Friday or early next week.

First, I suggest reading the History of Changes to WCAG 2.0 Working Drafts 
(what is commonly called "the change log").  In great detail, it describes 
changes that have been made as well as issues that I identified while 
working on it.

After that, delve into the new draft.

It's getting longer...
Therefore I have provided a few different style sheets that will show/hide 
various sections of the document. This will eventually be generated on the 
fly (as we've discussed), but for now, here are some URIs to try.

1. Only show guideline and checkpoint text (even hides the intro)

2. Only show guideline, checkpoint, and criteria

3. Only show guidelines, checkpoint, and benefits

Create your own and share...it's easy to do.

e.g., to only show criteria:
.example {display:none}
.defn {display:none}
.benefit {display:none}

I look forward to a lively discussion tomorrow and comments on the 
list.  Please let me know if I have misinterpreted or misrepresented your 
comments in any way.  Keep in mind that it's a draft and that we are 
supposed to discuss it and make it better.  Also, if I've completely messed 
something up, don't worry - everything is recoverable.  <grin/>

What I found most exciting while working on this draft, was how much 
everyone has contributed to it.  I used proposed text from over 10 
people.  Keep it  up!  I apologize it took so long for you all to see your 
suggestions make it in to a draft.

I want to recognize Tom Martin from the Library of Congress who has been a 
great help in cleaning up the writing and who seems to be a technical 
editor extraordinaire.  Thanks Tom!!

Be well,

p.s. Katie, Paul, Lisa, Matt - you've all had comments on the intro.  It's 
getting longer and perhaps not in the best order right now.  Thoughts? 
Please refer to the change log for more specific issues and questions.
