Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Editorial suggestions

Proposed Change:
note: some similar suggestions for other appendices and so any changes should be synched

suggestion: Edit first paragraph -- will help with specific suggestions – e.g., “The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Checklist serves as an appendix to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 [WCAG20]” is unnecessary given the title; explain where the “[How to meet]” links go. Keep in mind that this page will be pointed to, printed, and used as a separate document. Add pointer to Overview of WCAG 2.0 Documents www.w3.org/WAI/intro/wcag20 (which will explain “For many readers, the Checklist provides a quick reference and overview to the information in WCAG 2.0.” and so probably delete it here.)

suggestion: Use “Informative” rather than “Non-Normative” and link “informative” to the glossary definition. Consider deleting one of them – either from the <h1> or from the first sentence. If leave first sentence, change to “Appendix B: Checklist is informative.”

suggestion: within table, align top (note with my configuration (Opera at 150%) I see nothing in the first 2 columns at the top of the first table)

suggestion: remove hover colour (rationale: adds unnecessary complexity, complicates colour coding because highlight colour is same at Level 2 colour) note: in Opera 8.5 Windows the entire row is highlighted

suggestion: put a column heading on the first column (“Level”) and underneath it use either “Level #” or just “#” (rather than current “L#”)

suggestion: remove line under Guideline (rationale: adds visual complexity, unnecessary since all that is under it is table)

suggestion: consider putting the referenced terms in regular font style, not italic (rationale: simplify visual design) consider using standard link colours for terms

suggestion: consider putting the success criteria numbers in regular font style, not italic (rationale: simplify visual design)

question: why not include [Understanding] links for the guidelines?

suggestion: clean up top matter (\"Quick Table of Contents\" extraneous? \" Appendix B: Checklist” repetitive with <h1> and links to self) 

question: should the <title> and the <h1> match, or be more similar?
