A good example is the Government of Canada's Common Look and Feel (CLF)
        See http://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/clf2-nsi2/index-eng.asp
of course these are directed to the departments (agencies) in the Canadian 
federal government, but could be used by anyone.

They even have a Web Experience Toolkit (WET) that includes ready-made 
tools and solutions for building and maintaining innovative Web sites that 
are accessible, usable, and interoperable. These tools and solutions are 
open source software and free for use by departments and external Web 
The toolkit complies with CLF 2.0 standards, and the proposed new Standard 
on Web Accessibility; the toolkit will also ease compliance with upcoming 
Web Standards, including Web Usability and Web Interoperability. WET is 
highly recommended for use on Government of Canada Websites.

We are working on implementing WCAG 2 in our national web guidelines
for public sector websites. The guidelines encompass more than
accessibility (user centric development process requirements, minority
language law requirements, various technical stuff).

I would be grateful for information on other national web guidelines
and how they have incorporated WCAG 2. As a portal requirement for a
specific level? Or did you implement a subset only (as indicated in [1])?

Was it a successful approach?
