I think this is an excellent suggestion.  Sites may in fact have
different areas.  We have even discussed having different presentations
for different cognitive levels.

So I would concur with suggestion


Checkpoint 3.3:  Write as clearly and simply as is appropriate for the
content.

[Gregg] Checkpoint 3.3:  Write as clearly and simply as is appropriate
for
the site's content.

[Paul] I think this works well, with one exception: The type of content
may
vary widely on any given site, along with the intended audience. Not
every
piece of content is written for the same audience at the same reading
level,
educational level, etc.

Perhaps we need to drop the word "site's" and just say:

Checkpoint 3.3:  Write as clearly and simply as is appropriate for the
content.


P.S. ( I do like the suggestion of simply saying "Write clearly and
simply,"
but this may be too much of a reduction for this draft)
