Thank you, Michael. This is an enormous editing task.

I'd like WG members to sign up to review different techniques, so we get
complete coverage. We should review all the Silverlight technique in the
next 2 weeks, so we'll be ready for more reviews when the PDF techniques are
ported.

Please pick 3 techniques to review. I have set up a sign-up page at
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Reviews; please put your name on the items you
are reviewing, so we don't duplicate effort. If you will not be able to
review techniques in the next few weeks, please let me know.

Loretta
