>WAI mourns the passing of John Slatin, who was Co-Chair of the Web 
>Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Working Group in 2005 and 
>2006. Through his persistence, patience, and keen insight, John 
>contributed greatly to the field of accessibility, especially to the

>greatly missed by his colleagues at W3C/WAI and in the broader 
>accessibility community.
