A few more blog comments on WCAG 2.0 PR:

At <http://my.opera.com/ODIN/blog/wcag-2-0-3> Henny Swann writes:
"I've actually been using it [WCAG 2.0] for a 
while and find it much easier to use than WCAG 
1.0. It provides more techniques and advisory 
techniques, is more testable than WCAG 1.0 and 
has a wealth of supporting documentation and 
practical tools to help you implement the guidelines."

At 
<http://stevenclark.com.au/2008/11/07/wcag-20-proposed-recommendation/>, 
Steven Clark writes that the "Tasmanian 
Government Website Standards" state that there is 
a requirement for conformance to WCAG 2.0.

But there are also those who find it hard to 
read, like the first commenter on the blog post at
<http://www.tomstardust.com/archives/wcag-20-le-nuove-linee-guida/>: 
"per me  arabo... non ne capisco affatto" ("It's 
all Arabic to me... I don't understand it at all").

The Web Standards Project asks for help to put 
together a list of useful resources for WCAG 2.0:
<http://www.webstandards.org/2008/11/06/wcag-20-resources/>.

Best regards,

Christophe
