*RESOLUTION: Accepted as amended*


      Issue LC-2496: "should" vs "must"

<awk> maybe in the non-normative documents we could link to the
definition of these terms and tell people that they MUST read them...

<Loretta> http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2011/WD-WCAG20-TECHS-20110621/G141.html

<David> 100 musts in Techniques doc

<David> 1. Used to indicate obligation, duty, or correctness, typically
when criticizing someone's actions: "he should have been careful".

<David> 2. Indicating a desirable or expected state: "by now students
should be able to read".

<Loretta> We have added a discussion of the uses of "must" and "should"
in techniques to the introduction to the Techniques document. We hope
that this will clarify interpretations of the techniques. "Must" and
"should" are not used in a normative way in WCAG itself, and since WCAG
has 3 levels of conformance, the RFC 2119 definitions cannot be used in
that context anyway. Please let us know whether this still leaves
misinterpretations in our uses of these terms.

<Loretta> Since WCAG has 3 levels of conformance, "must" and "should"
cannot be used as in the RFC 2119 definitions.

<David> Since WCAG has 3 levels of conformance, although "must" and
"should" cannot are used as in the RFC 2119 definitions, it is not an
exact mapping.

<David> Since WCAG has 3 levels of conformance, although "must" and
"should" are used as in the RFC 2119 definitions, it is not an exact
mapping.

<Loretta> We use "must" and "should" in ways that are similar to RFC
2119, although since WCAG has 3 levels of conformance, we cannot
reference those definitions directly.

<greggvanderheiden> We are not using RFC 2119 in our standard because it
cannot be applied in a standard like ours with 3 levels of conformance.

*RESOLUTION: Accepted as modified*


      Issue LC-2537: Reflow and Order panel can not guarantee the
      reading order

<awk> Note: Reordering content with the reading order is most
appropriate for simple text content within a PDF since modifications
made with the order panel can affect not only the reading order but the
underlying structure of content contained within the PDF. This may
impact the z-order for content on a page, including making some content
become hidden behind other content. Authors should save their work
before using the order panel and verify that the changes do

(http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=PDF_Technology_Notes)
