Comment Type: general comment
Summary of Issue: user agent detection
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Document compliance without any user agent identification WAI compliance ?

The sorry state of the web\'s accessibility

MAY have something to do with this.

Though specialized servers that convert documents is nice, a simple WAI conforming http request attribute suffices.

I am pretty sure many people will move rather readily towards developing WAI AAA documents once such a specification is in place and is seen as moving towards wide spread acceptance.

As for removing tables, this is seen as a content/presentation seperation issue and NOT an assisstive technology issue.

if such is not the case then either a clear explanation as to how exactly a table is non assisstive could be placed in the Guidelines.

if such is the case then perhaps not trying to associate assissitveness to \'no tables\'

might help in furthening the credibility of the Guidleines. Something that may affect them being respected hence accepted hence moved upon.

Thank you.

Proposed Change:
More movement towards WAI user agent identification conformance.

Removal of the \'replace tables now\' philosophy.

Such changes might prove helpfull to all concerned

and more readily furthen the good intentions of the WAI group.
