Item Number: mapping
Part of Item: 
Comment Type: editorial
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
People may need to use the comparison table in very different ways, but the current organization of the mapping table does not easily allow for that. Also, some users may not initially realize the various ways it can be helpful, or may misunderstand it as solely as mapping table, or gap table, etc. 

Proposed Change:
Clarify purpose & uses of the table by:

1. Adding a column for keywords, and enable multiple views of the comparison table, for instance: 

  -- sequencing by WCAG 2.0 success criteria

  -- sequencing by WCAG 1.0 checkpoint number

  -- sequencing by level

  -- sequencing by keyword

2. Adding a few very brief use-cases as a mini-introduction, to highlight what this comparison table can be used for; for example:

  -- if you are currently using WCAG 1.0, and want to see what the corresponding provision might be in WCAG 2.0;

  -- if you are already using WCAG 2.0, but need to demonstrate conformance to WCAG 1.0;

  -- if you need to compare what is required under a given priority or level of conformance;

  -- if you need to find how a certain issue, such as color contrast, is handled in both WCAG 1.0 and WCAG 2.0
