I am preparing a new draft of CSS Techniques for discussion at Wednesday's 
Techniques Task Force (and ultimately, approval by the WCAG WG for 
publication on /TR).  Here is an update on CSS issues [1] and changes I 
have made related to each.  This is not a complete list of changes I have 
made to the draft. Most of the changes are from the 16 and 23 June 
teleconference discussions and were not associated with a specific 
issue.  I will update the change log with all changes I've made when I 
publish the internal draft tomorrow.

189 Include positioning and more technical examples.  Unspecific issue.
