Hi Lisa -- good point. "Provide clear content" is a more generalized way
to go than "write clearly."  And it also plays nicely off the reference
to content in the wording of Guideline 4.

Speaking of which, I would like to offer an unsolicited suggestion to
slightly rephrase the guideline from: 

Guideline 4 - Understandable. Make it as easy as possible to understand
the content and controls. 


Guideline 4 - Understandable. Make the content and controls as easy to
understand as possible.
