Thanks for this proposal. The idea of a Reference section organized
around the SC and providing all the techniques we have for each one,
including advisory techniques; plus an Application section organized
around what Wendy called "macro-level tasks" SUCH AS           creating
accessible forms, or data tables, or consistent layouts, etc., is
It's also a little daunting! I say that because it sounds like these are
actually two separate documents, each one pretty large in its own right
(I'm seeing a heavy book in my mind's eye). And I'm not sure I
understand how they relate to what's presently in the
Technology-specific or the General Techniques docs.
Am I right in thinking that you're envisioning these as separate
documents-or possibly as separate chapters in a book-like format? And
(whatever the answer to that question is) how arey related to the
current General and Technology-specific techniques documents?
What am I missing?
Whatever the answer to that question, how do these two sections relate
to our present General and Tech-specific techniques documents?

 Possible Format for techniques doc?


Techniques doc has two sections 

*                           Reference Section
1.                              Organized by Success Criterion
2.                              With descriptions of implications for
different technologies (collapsible) 
*                           Application Section
1.                              Organized by activity  (e.g. creating
forms, media, etc. )

 FORMAT of techniques in REFERENCE section

1.                                          Success Criterion
2.                                          Key words in SC (definition
of key words)
3.                                          How SC criterion applies to
the Following Technologies
*                                            Technology 1 (e.g. HTML)
*                                            Technology 2
*                                            (this list may collapse or
have members dependent on user saying that they are using or not using
particular technology)
4.                                          Advisory Techniques  (not
needed to conform to SC)
*                                            (may be mixed with #3 above
but would need to be clearly marked as ADVISORY techniques so they are
not confused with those needed to conform to SC) 
5.                                          Tests/test-methods to test
for completion of the technique
*                                            These are links to tests
for techniques (both SC related techniques and ADVISORY techniques) 

FORMAT of techniques in APPLICATION section

1.                                          This is formatted to make it
easy to understand how to do things within a particular activity - such
as designing online Forms. 
2.                                          Should be compatible with
REFERENCE section - but would be different
