Dear Bruno,

Thank you for your comments on the Nov. 19, 2004 WCAG 2.0 Working Draft.

We hope WCAG applies to making content accessible no matter what device the 
content appears on, although mobile devices haven't been a primary goal nor 
our primary area of expertise. Could you clarify whether you think there 
are guidelines or techniques that are missing that would enable better 
accessibility on mobile devices?

Are there particular suggestions that we might pass to the Education and 
Outreach group?
