Dear Sirs:

I regreat to anounce that your page:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/
isn't in accordance with your standards and uses the WAI Standard symbol.
Reasons:

deprecated features of W3C technologies.

   - Rule: 11.2.1 - Identify the use of one or more deprecated elements
   or attributes within the document.

These to issues need to be solved in order to claim a WAI-AA WCAG

*Priority 3 Verification Checklist

*10.5 <http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/#tech-divide-links> Until user

Althou the page is WAI-A WCAG 1.0 and not WAI-AA as you claim.

I'm proud to say that my company's web site gained WAI-AAA WCAG 1.0, XHTML
1.0 and CSS validation yesterday after a long and painfull effort to do it
so.

Kind regards
