 From the WCAG Techniques telecon of Aug 4, did I have an action item to do 
an end-to-end analysis for Guideline 3.2?   I seem to see on the site 
http://eramp.com/david/ that one has already been done for 3.2?

In terms of possible tests, I started to look at any of Chris Ridpath's 
tests for 3.2 (I saw 2 listed for 3.2 WCAG2.0 (Level AAA) dated 2004-03-19 
ATRC assignment?),  started looking at any Bobby tests to see if any could 
be matched to 3.2, and searched for other accessibility tests that might 
possibly apply to 3.2..

Before proceeding further with my task, I have some questions re: 3.2 
Success Criteria, as to objective definitions of "extreme changes in 
context" and "manner: that can be "programmatically identified".   Can 
anyone supply unambiguous definitions for those terms?  Also, the available 
tests seem to be HTML-based; are we considering other than HTML in 
testing?   Are we considering a variety of languages (internationalization 
issues) - since perceived "change in context" may be affected by such 
issues?    What about device-independence issues?

Thanks, Tim Boland NIST
