I took an action item to propose a scripting technique and procedures for 
testing it.   I selected one of the techniques that was proposed during 
the techniques harvesting performed in July.   I selected a relatively 
easy technique to support GL 2.2 L3 SC 2, Non-emergency interruptions, 
such as the availability of updated content, can be postponed or 
suppressed by the user. [1].   The idea is to show a technique to allow 
the user to turn off non-essential interruptions such as those created via 
the JavaScript alert() function.   Since it can be very difficult to 
create automated tests for JavaScript techniques, I also created a set of 
test procedures for testing that the technique was implemented properly. 
In addition, the techniques task force has been working to finalize a 
format for providing baseline information for each of the techniques. This 
technique includes a proposal in the "Baseline Implications" section. 

Please review the attached technique and comment on:
-the technique itself
-the testing procedures
-the baseline information and organization.

This will be discussed at the next Techniques teleconference on August 17.
