Hi John

I was working off of the resolutions in the minutes.   

resolution: change the wording of GL L SC1 to read "perceivable structures
within the content can be programmatically determined."
... accept guide doc as edited, GL 1.3 L1 SC1

My memory is that this change was for GL 1.3 L1 SC1.

I think GL 2.4 L1 SC1 was changed to something like "Navigational mechanisms
within the content can be programmatically determined"

(the June 30 wording for 2.4 L1 SC1 says "Navigation features..."
instead of "m"mechanisms")

Last week we changed  2.4 L1 SC1 to  Perceivable structures within the
content can be programmatically determined.


But we did not define   Perceivable structures 


Here is a candidate definition for comment. 


perceivable structures 
    structures in the document that are reflected in the presentation and
can be used for orientation and navigation including determining
relationships between parts of the content.
