Yesterday I took an action item to clarify Guideline 3.1 Example 4
(which had to do with abstraction and concreteness).
 
<proposed>
* Example 3: a description of a complex natural event

 

A Web page discusses Mt. Pinatubo in the Phillipines. The page includes
a description of the 1991 eruption as well as photos of the eruption and
its aftermath. The page also includes a brief explanation of why
volcanoes erupt.  To clarify this explanation, , the page links to site
that contains video and another site that contains a 3D simulation of
what happened underneath the crust and within the volcano during the
eruption.

</proposed>
 
The prposal above was included in a set of proposed examples for
Guideline 3.1 sent to the list  in May of this year [1], and originally
in the co-called plain language rewrite of what used to be Guideline 3.3
back in November [2]. The May proposal also organized the examples by
success criteria (something that came up in the discussion with JIS
during yesterday's call).
 
The proposed example would replace the current wording of Example 4 from
the 3 September internal working draft [3]. The current wording follows:
<current>
* Example 4: a concrete concept.
 
The primary concept on a page is concrete. It is discussing Mt.
Pinatubo. It includes both a description of the 1991 eruption as well as
photos of the eruption
and the aftermath. It links to another site that contains video and
another site that contains a 3D simulation of what happened underneath
the crust and
within the volcano during the eruption.
