We will be meeting next week at CSUN and as can be seen from the agenda, one
of the two major foci will be on the baseline.  We will not be able to make
progress on this if we do not have good data going into the meeting.  I am

If you have any information at all to contribute to one of these (or your
new) topics, please take the time this week and send it to the list.

I want to thank in advance Ben, Becky, Andi, David and Kerstin for already
volunteering to contribute information toward items  1, 5, 7

Data needed for baseline:

1.) What can authors assume about all user agents accessing their content if
user agents were UAAG 1.0 conformant?

2.) What is impact on WCAG 2.0 Guidelines and SC?

3.) What user agents today meet which provisions of UAAG 1.0?

4.) Which meet all?

5.) How does HPR 3.04 meet UAAG 1.0?

6.) Sort SC and/or techniques into UAAG 1.0 Baseline and bridge/repair

7.) SC to techniques mapping cleanup
