Is there a definitive layout for the "How to Meet" doc. 

 

i.e.

 

Success_Criteria

<key_terms>

<intent>

<examples>

<sufficient_techniques>

            <technology_independent>

            <HTML>

            <CSS>

            <more .>

            <common_failures>

<optional_techniques>

            <technology_independent>

            <HTML>

            <CSS>

            <more .>

<benefits>

<examples>

<related_resourses>

 

If this heading order is wrong or the parent child relationships are wrong,
could someone correct it and post it to the list? I think it will be helpful
to have something clearly laid out for everyone to see.

 

I went through the WIKI and found the following:

 

These have HTML headings in both the Sufficient and Optional sections:

 

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_1.1.1

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_1.1.3

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_1.1.4

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_2.4.4

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_3.1.1

 

These have SMIL headings in both Sufficient and Optional sections:

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_1.2.1

 

This has CSS in both the Sufficient and optional sections:

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_1.3.2

 

The Following have Situation A, Situation B headings but the other
techniques don't:

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_1.1.1

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_1.1.3

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_1.3.2

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_1.3.4

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_2.5.1

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_2.5.2

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_2.5.3

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_2.5.4

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_3.1.1

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_3.1.2

http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterio
n_3.1.5

 

 

I'm OK with looking at it later.but I don't understand the outline as it
stands right now. 

 

I don't think we should put the technology independent techniques in the
optional section because many of them are not optional.

I don't understand why you think the current organization lacks of clarity.

Adding additional layers of labels makes it even harder to understand the
relationships between the different pieces. It just adds one more "link" to
follow before you finally reach the information about the technique.

Can't we just add technology independent techniques to the optional section,
before the technology-specific subsections?

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".
