Hi Eds,

Copy edit suggestions
(http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/conformance.html):

1. Currently we have  "determine what level of accessibility a Web site
meets"

Suggest:  "determine what level of accessibility an existing Web site meets"

2. Currently we have:  "without using the mouse tab through the links and
form controls"

Suggest:  "without using the mouse "tab" through the links and form
controls" - put TAB in double quotes as the TAB key is not the keystroke to
use in some browsers, eg. Opera

3. The suggestion to "change the display color to gray scale" is not
adequate - can we link to some of the tools that utilise the Draft W3C
algorithm such as
http://www.nils.org.au/ais/web/resources/contrast_analyser/index.html or
http://www.juicystudio.com/services/colourcontrast.php

4. Currently in 3.4 we have: "Read over the selected sample of pages: is the
text clear and simple to the extent appropriate for the purpose of the Web
site"

Suggest: "Read over the selected sample of pages: is the text clear and
simple to the extent appropriate for the purpose of the Web site and do the
links make sense without the surrounding text"

Should we also suggest the use of "readability" tools such as suggested in
http://www.standards-schmandards.com/index.php?2005/09/09/24-measuring-text-
readability or provided by
http://www.juicystudio.com/services/readability.php even if we don't point
to these tools?

Andrew
