Thanks  Sean,

 

Ben can you make the Minor Edit change Sean suggests.  It is editorial and
it looks good.

 

 

Sean,   I don't see any difference from what you have listed below as "what
we agreed to"  and what is in the guidelines.  (maybe you looked at it
before Ben had a chance to make all the changes from our meeting last week.
Check out the current draft and see if you see any differences.  Might be
one but I couldn't find one.

1 - Minor edits:

Was: "RE: Decorative text, we do not specify that decorative text need be
low contrast. Just that there be high contrast between and non-decorative
text and what is immediately around it. IF that is background text it would
by definition have to be low contrast. If not behind text we have no
restrictions on it."

Propose:

"RE: Decorative text, we do not require that decorative text need be high or
low contrast. Just that there be sufficient contrast between non-decorative
text and what is immediately around it. IF the background of non-decorative
text contains decorative text the contrast provision would apply. If not we
have no restrictions on it."

 

2 - The language we agreed on (email from you sent on Thu 26/04/2007 20:29):

 

1.4.2 Contrast (Minimum):  Text (and images of text) have a
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/WD-WCAG20-20070220/#contrast-ratiodef#contr
ast-ratiodef> contrast ratio of at least 5:1, except if the text is
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/WD-WCAG20-20070220/#puredecdef#puredecdef>
pure decoration.  Larger scale text or images of text can have a contrast
ratio of 3:1. (Level AA)

YOU WROTE

The response doesnt address their concern about when text is being used as
decoration.

 

*TEXT added to address this. check it out.   issue 1161
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/issue-tracking/viewdata_individual.php?id=1
161>     Ok?

 

 



Also want to make sure that the stabilisation draft contains the text we
agrred on before (which isn't in the current WD).

 

 Can you say what the text you are referring to is?    (we talked about a
lot)

 

Thanks
