Thanks for collecting these. Sorry it took so long to do something with them.

I have updated the CSS-TECHS issues list [1] with these issues.  I felt that some of these were not CSS techs issues and therefore did not add them to the list.  Thanks for being conservative tho, Andi. Explanations and issue #'s follow. 

There are also several issues from last July (in response to the draft published then) that have to be addressed. I'll include these in the list as well.

[1] http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/css-tech-issues.html

>10/01/00 Doesn't understand rationale for recommending numbers vs. color
>names http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-gl/2000OctDec/0006.html

added as issue #13

>10/04/00 Example in Section 8 is depracated.

Added as issue #14, but pointing to message http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-gl/2000OctDec/0014.html

>10/12/00 Comment from CMN about constraint CSS
>Do we need to address this in CSS Techniques?

This URI is the next issue. Couldn't find what you were trying to refer to.

>10/26/00 Example of graphic button with styled text that also works without
>style sheets

added as issue #15

>12/11/00 Mistake in CSS Techniques
>Wendy replies that she will fix it in next release. Need to verify.

i have not fixed it yet. added a general issue for typos as #16

>12/25/00 Do start/value attributes for <ol> <li> elements in CSS break WCAG
>1.0 checkpoint 6.1 which requires that the document be readable w/o style
>sheets? http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-gl/2000OctDec/0965.html

This is primarily an issue for the HTML Techs, it will need some note about reliance on CSS.  Since we ought to give an example in the CSS Techs, I'll add issue #17.

>3/7/01 Techniqus for color contrast seem vague - Wendy


>3/16/01 12 Rules and Borders - what browser does example work in? - Chuck
