FYI - the WCAG Samurai Errata for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines
(WCAG) 1.0 was published yesterday. Here are the links:
http://wcagsamurai.org/errata/errata.html,
http://wcagsamurai.org/errata/intro.html. Thanks. 

Roberto Scano:

I hope this is a joke, but it isn't :-)

"These errata do not cover WCAG 2.0 in any respect. The WCAG Samurai Errata
are published as an alternative to WCAG 2. You may comply with WCAG 2, or
with these errata, or with neither, but not with both at once."

Is april 1st today or someone have too much personal ego? :-)


"No to Priority 3: Not only do you not have to comply with any Priority 3
guidelines, most of which are unworkable, you must not comply with them."

Great, this means that, for example, is possible to make an accessible web
site without respecting the colour contrast for text? (level 3 in WCAG 1.0)

And from the document:

"Do not use animated GIFs, ASCII art, frames, spacers, or server-side
imagemaps."

"You may use any defined units for text sizing, layout, or other purposes.
The difference between relative and absolute units is immaterial to these
errata. (px, by specification, was and is a relative unit.) Use of px as a
unit to size text is explicitly permitted."

I think these words talks theme self.
