Hi Folks 

I eyeballed down the table of contents for the HTML techniques document to
see if I could quickly identify techniques that would be affected and
unaffected by the change in Baseline policy that gives us 3 baseline levels.
It was a simple (imperfect) exercise to see how much our work may be
affected. 

(please disregard the bottom of my last email post to the list (that looks
like what I've done below. It was an unfinished start at what I've done
here.)
