I had an action item to come up with a definition of "relationship" for the
glossary as it pertains to SC 1.3.1


1.3.1 Information and relationships conveyed through
<http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/appendixA.html#presentationdef> presentation
can be
programmatically determined, and notification of changes to these is
available to  <http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/appendixA.html#useragentdef> user
agents, including  <http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/appendixA.html#atdef>
assistive technologies. [How
eparation-programmatic>  to meet 1.3.1]


Here is my recommendation:



Definition of *Relationships*:


"Meaningful associations between distinct chunks of content"


Examples of chunks that have relationships include: 
-a heading and the paragraph which follows it; 
-a section title and the subsections that are within it; 
-a control and its label; 
-the boxes in an organization or flow chart; 
-and table cells and their headers. 




...access empowers people...

                   ...bariers disable them...
