Message-ID: <028c01c5191e$95891730$e29a968e@WILDDOG>
To: "WAI WCAG List" <w3c-wai-gl@w3.org>

Listed below are the changes made in response to the actions from our last
teleconference.

The following 4 tests were rejected:

Text equivalents for applet must be updated if applet changes
(applets not covered in HTML tests)
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test24.html

input element, type of "text", must have default text
(no longer needed)
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test63.html

Document must have address for author
(does not improve accessibility)
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test143.html

Document address must be valid
(does not improve accessibility)
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test144.html

Changed "document" to "content" in tests 97 and 109. Actually, I did a
global replace so all references to "document" are now to "content". I'm not
sure this is correct for all tests but we can change this later when we do a
good wordsmithing on the documents.

Tests 97 and 109 were also rejected from the HTML test suite because they
deal with CSS and should really go in the CSS test suite. They will be moved
over when that test suite exists.
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test97.html
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test109.html

Fixed prerequisite for test 194.
Alt text for all area elements contains all non decorative text in the image
area.
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test194.html

Test 92 has been changed per Becky's suggestions.
All select elements do not cause an extreme change in context
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test92.html

Test 168 has been changed to apply to radio buttons only.
All radio button groups are marked using fieldset and legend elements

http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test168.html

Test 66 now has working test files and text was changed as per Michael's
suggestion.
area link to sound file must have text transcript

http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test66.html

Test 198 was changed to legend quality and many fixups in test files.
legend text describes the group of choices
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test198.html

Tests 199 and 200 were created to deal with legend.
legend text is not empty or whitespace
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test199.html

legend text is not placeholder text
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test200.html

As always, the test suite status can be found at:

Cheers,
Chris
