Hi Anne

I agree that there should be a straightforward way to see what the A+
means.  This was provided for in 1.4 I believe.
The person would click on the conformance claim and it would tell you
what the Plus meant.   That is, it would tell you what the person did
beyond A.

And this was just a suggestion to go on the list of suggestions or


"1.4. Individuals doing more than A would claim A+.  Clicking on the +
would take them to a list of the items covered by the +. "

[This should more clearly have said, clicking on the A+ logo would take
you to a list of items covered beyond A. ]

         I'm a bit confused as to how conformance is reported or

         If it is inserted as metadata, how is the information provided
the user? By reading the source view of a page? If the information isn't

provided to the user, for whom is it intended?

         I don't think that A+7 tells anyone anything about what is and
isn't complied with. I would much prefer two divisions, A, for the
requirements, and double A for meeting all requirements. It will be
to monitor, and easier for the page author to understand.
