The following is a proposal for HTML techniques. I will implement the proposal in a draft unless there is objection from the group. There will still be room for debate of the proposal in the context of the next draft.

Guideline 2.4 [1] speaks to a site map. HTML techniques should as well, indicating the requirement (probably linking to General techniques) and describing good ways to link to the map. Additionally, following the recommendation of WCAG 1.0 Checkpoint 13.3 [2] the site map should include a description of accessibility features of the site. Possibly this needs to bubble up into General techniques or guidelines.
