PROPOSAL #1: In 1.4.1 Basic text formatting (Globally) - REMOVE the note:
Note: Any user settings from the platform for these characteristics are implemented.


PROPOSAL #2: 1.3.1 Distinguishable Highlighting - REMOVE the note:
Note: Any user settings from the platform for these characteristics are implemented.

ed. The rationale for removing them is twofold: (1) the notes are normative, meaning that any other implementation approach would be a FAIL. (2) the notes could really apply much more widely (e.g. 1.3.3 Highlighting Active Keyboard Focus). In fact, we already have a conformance applicability note: 
- "Relationship with operating system or platform: The user agent does not need to implement every behavior itself. A required behavior can be provided by the platform, user agent, user agent extensions, or potentially other layers. All are acceptable, as long as they are enumerated in the conformance claim."


PROPOSAL #3: NEW SC 1.4.X: Default to platform text settings: The user can specify that platform text settings be used as the default values for text configuration. (Level AA)


PROPOSAL #4: CONSIDER aligning 5.1.3 more with ATAG2 A.1.2.1:

5.1.3 Implement Accessibility Features of the Platform: If the user agent contains non-web-based user interfaces, then those user interfaces respect platform accessibility settings and follow user interface accessibility guidelines for the platform. (Level A)

A.1.2.1 Accessibility Guidelines: If the authoring tool contains non-web-based user interfaces, then those non-web-based user interfaces follow user interface accessibility guidelines for the platform. (Level A)


PROPOSAL #5: REVIEW notes for GL 1.4:
e.g.
Note 1 is incorrect: 1.4.5 included in both sentences
Note 3 should link to "Guideline 1.7 - Enable configuration of user stylesheets"




Cheers,
Jan
