This mapping of the guidelines to the techniques down to the detailed tests is very valuable. This is what page authors need when they want to comply with the guidelines.

It's a difficult tedious task even for you experts in the field but it needs to be done. The average page author would be completely lost in trying to do the same thing.

Note that the document you referenced with the list of tests is out of date. The most current list of tests can be found at more stable URLs.

tests mapped to HTML techniques:

tests mapped to the WCAG2:

  Subject: Issues and questions: mapping guidelines and success criteria to techniques and tests


  Hello,

  Jenae and I mapped the Level 1 success criteria for Guidelines 1.1 and 1.3
  to the Techniques Gateway and from there to HTML techniques and tests. We
  referred to the 11 March 2004 Working Draft of WCAG 2.0 [1], the 06
  April 2004 draft of Techniques Gateway [2], and the 09 December
  2003 Working Draft of HTML Techniques for WCAG 2.0 [3].

  For each guideline we came up with several issues and questions. Our notes 
  are in the attached file.
