Hi Duff,

I am somewhat concerned by this statement. Can you elaborate on which 
techniques you believe are "simply wrong, or misleading"? The WCAG Techniques 
group should be advised of these issues, so that they can be addressed 
(although I find it curious, as Andrew Kirkpatrick is the chair of that 
working group at the W3C). For the benefit of us all, please do elaborate. 
(Thanks!!)
