Dear all,

I have scanned WCAG 2.0 draft with interest. My personal opinion (I 
cannot speak for others at the University of Oxford, or for the 
university here) is that there should be 3 levels of conformance as 
with WCAG 1.0.

In fact, if you can manage to keep the approach and format as close as 
you can to WCAG 1.0 I think it would be appreciated by everyone. WCAG 
1.0 may have been published in 1999, but (perhaps unbelievably) it is 
still new to some people involved in web publishing.

If you can respond to the criticisms as well as make it clear that the 
overall goal posts have not shifted, it will make it easier for those 
of us who have to raise awareness about standards in web publishing, 
and then explain that those standards have recently been updated.

Yours sincerely,
