Hi Gian,

While researching my action item on Checkpoint 10.2 I noticed that we did 
not map WCAG 1.0 Checkpoint 12.4: Associate labels explicitly with their 
controls with the following SC:
    WCAG 2.0 GL 4.2 Level 1 SC:
     The label of each user interface control that accepts input
     from the user can be programmatically determined and is
     explicitly associated with the control.

It is currently mapped to:
     WCAG 2.0 GL 1.3 Level 1 SC
     Structures within the content can be programmatically determined.

I believe the former is the more appropriate mapping.

GL 4.2 Level 1 SC 4 is indeed the mapping that came out of the surveys; GL 
1.3 Level 1 SC 1 is the previous situation 
(http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2005/06/30-mapping.html). As far as I know, the 
updated mapping is currently only available in the mailing list archive, at
