We can look at this.  Right now we don't duplicate any of the technology
specific.    And until we are through - I don't want to have duplicate items
we need to keep in synch. 

 

We can consider this when we are down the pike more.   Maybe look at both
ways again and see. 

 

Last time we did side by sides - we decided to go this way.   But lets get
these finished and formatted and look again later.

We have headings for HTML and CSS techniques in both the sufficient and
optional sections. Why not have "Technology Independent Techniques" headings
in both the sufficient and optional sections? I think clarity is more
important than duplicate duplications.

The tech indep show up in two places.

 

Either - in a sufficiency statement 

Or - in an advisory area.

 

 

We used to have the sufficient ones listed just after the sufficiency
section but it seemed so redundant that we removed it. 

 

Anything that is a link in the sufficient section is a tech indep technique.


 

Having a section for them seemed to make sense but . can't figure out how to
do it without having duplication repetitively in a duplicative fashion.

In the "How to meet." Document, I think we need to have a "Technology
Independent" heading in the techniques. I don't think it is clear if we just
have some general techniques with no heading followed by a heading that says
"Technology-Specific".
