I've published the 28 July 2000 UA Guidelines [1] and
Techniques [2] documents (refer to the list of changes [3],
which have been quoted below). 

The issues list [4] and Determining Conformance
to the UA Guidelines [5] are up to date. The latter indicates
which checkpoints have not yet had their minimal requirements
finalized; it is based on an earlier draft, but corresponds
closely in checkpoint numbering to this draft.

I implemented Eric's proposed multimedia definitions in this
draft, but did not yet re-read the document to see whether
all the terms are used consistently in the document (This
is on my todo list).

I incorporated some editorial changes that are also on the
issues list but are so benign that I incorporated them in
this draft. These are:

  a) Rewrote checkpoint 7.2 to try to clarify.
  b) Added a statement to the definition of active element
     about when elements may be inactive
  c) Added a note to checkpoint 8.8 to clarify that it's about
     semantics, not rendering.

Happy reading,

 - Ian

       comments from Eric Hansen.

       July teleconference.
     * 8.8: Added a note that this checkpoint is only about semantics,
       not presentation (refer to [20]issue 301).
     * 10.4: Modified per [21]27 July teleconference. Note: The

       the impact of this change in the document.

  Changes to Techniques

   While there were a few changes to the techniques document, they are
   not really worth documenting.
