Hi Brooke,

there are quite a lot of these things - from W3C and from many other places
(and in many other languages). The document that started WCAG was a
collection of these things, and it is useful to go back and collect / compare
every so often. There are also things that are particular to each
organisation, so there is value in adding that kind of information to the
stuff that we already have, for local distribution.

(I started to do it for the Amaya editing tool, and in a few local examples
that aren't available to be published).

  Hi all:

  I feel that I'm hitting a new level of learning with Section 508.  My knowledge seems to be many of the workshops that are offered by the agency where I work. I know how to make a site accessible on my own.  However, now I need to create a requirements document for the programmers who manage our site. Almost like the W3C/508 checklists, indicating exactly what must be overhauled and where (proper tagging, etc.).

  I have never created such a document.  Has anyone done this?  Are there examples on the web I might download? As always, your suggestions are always appreciated and insightful!
