   >Hello,

   >This message is being sent on behalf of the Authoring Tools Working 
   >Group (AUWG). This is a compilation of comments on the recent working 
   >draft of WCAG 2.0 (http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-WCAG20-20040730/)
   >
   >1. There was agreement on the July 12 joint call to add a reference to 
   >WCAG regarding the role ATAG compliant tools will play in large scale 
   >use of the guidelines. This has not yet been added to WCAG, so the AUWG 
   >suggests the following:
   >
   >---
   >
   >Authoring Tools (A new heading right after "Audience" in Introduction to 
   >WCAG 2.0)
   >
   >A large proportion of Web content is created using authoring tool
   >software. By making authoring decisions directly or framing choices to
   >the author, these tools exercise a great deal of control over the nature
   >of the web content they produce. While it is recommended that all
   >authors become familiar with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines,
   >it is understood that widespread conformance to the guidelines will
   >depend on the degree to which authoring tools support and encourage
   >authoring practices that result in conformant content.
   >
   >Developers of authoring tools can help to make their tools more
   >WCAG-aware by adhering to the requirements of the W3C-WAI Authoring Tool
   >Accessibility Guidelines [ATAG], for which implementation techniques are
   >also available.
   >
   >User and purchasers of authoring tools are encouraged to make
   >conformance to W3C-WAI Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines [ATAG] a
   >factor when selecting tools.

   >2. Also the definition of "extreme changes in context" seems unfinished.
   >Tim Boland has also commented on this to the WCAG list:
   >http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-gl/2004JulSep/0344.html
   >
   >3. There was also some confusion as to whether the slight difference in 
   >naming convention between conformance claims in WCAG 2.0 vs. 1.0 was 
   >purposeful:
   >
   >conformance at level AAA vs. Conformance Level "Triple-A"
   >
   >4. There may also be some follow-up comments regarding the profile of 
   >metadata requirements in WCAG 2.0.
