Hi Jim,

Mostly minor nits follow...

Typo in Agent.

> "User Agent Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (UAAG 1.0) provides guidelines 
for ..."

Maybe better as "The User Agent Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (UAAG 1.0) is 
a set of guidelines for ..."

> Since the release of UAAG 1.0 as a W3C Recommendation in December 2002, 
the UAWG ...

User Agent Accessibility Guidelines Working Group is abbreviated as (UAAG 
WG) above. Need to indicate that this other abbreviation means the same 

> "functionality of assitive technology, "

Maybe "functionality of assistive technologies, "?

> "EOWG "

This isn't spelled out anywhere. I don't know what it is.

> (e.g. DOM, MSAA, AT-SPI, UA, UIA) 

Need to be spelled out also, or at least linked.

Wording seems strange.

> Primary operating systems and desktops include Windows XP and Vista, 
Linux Gnome and KDE and other UNIX variants such as Solaris, MAC OS, and 

Gnome needs to be GNOME (it's an acronym actually). I wouldn't say "Linux 
GNOME" as GNOME runs on AIX, Solaris, and lots of other Unix variants. MAC 
OS should probably be "Mac OS" or even "Mac OS X".

> Ensure that the revision is "backwards and forward compatible" 

Are we certain we can ensure backward compatibility? That seems like a 
tall order considering all of the issues we've been encountering with 1.0. 
For instance, the ability to disable stylesheets and the use of 
stylesheets for rendering in-page widgets seems to be in conflict.
