the cascade is like this:
1> do accessible.
2 which can go with one> serve content based on user requests/indicated
capabilities.  this refers to machines talking to one another.
3> as a last resort, provide separate web sets but make them congruent
and synchronous through out.

Hi,

I just realized I made a punctuation / typing error in this sentence.  I
meant to finish it with a question mark.

                          According to the 2.0 guidelines it is OK
  for Amazon to have multiple versions of the same web page in order
  to meet the various guidelines?
