The editors and Shawn Henry have had a long discussion on our structure and
navigation etc.


One problem we have had is that Guidelines and Guide Doc are very similar
and are getting confused by others. 


While working on structure and navigation we worked on the name and came up
with the following 


Get rid of the Guideline and Guide confusion problem (and create a name with
good scent) by calling the atomic guide docs  "HowToMeet" docs.


After each success criterion you would see  a link   "How to meet SC x.x.x"

        - it would link to an atomic doc called   "How to meet SC x.x.x"


The GUIDELINES would each have a link after them called     "Understanding
Guideline x.x"

-          it would link to the atomic doc of the same name 



The COLLECTION of all  "Understanding Guideline" and "How to meet"  atoms
would be a composite doc called  

"Understanding WCAG 2.0".  



These were felt to give good 'scent' for links in the doc and to also make
sense as doc title.  


More updates as we move through cleaning up the docs.
