Hi John


I see them as two chapters or two docs.  I see the reference doc as also
available as a set of docs with one SC per doc for convenience.

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 interesting.


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

*    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

*                     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
