Dear Kazunori MINATANI ,

Thank you for your comments on the 2006 Last Call Working Draft of the
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-WCAG20-20060427/). We appreciate the
interest that you have taken in these guidelines.

We apologize for the delay in getting back to you. We received many
constructive comments, and sometimes addressing one issue would cause
us to revise wording covered by an earlier issue. We therefore waited
until all comments had been addressed before responding to commenters.

This message contains the comments you submitted and the resolutions
to your comments. Each comment includes a link to the archived copy of
your original comment on
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/, and may
also include links to the relevant changes in the updated WCAG 2.0
Public Working Draft at http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-WCAG20-20070517/.

PLEASE REVIEW the decisions  for the following comments and reply to
us by 7 June at public-comments-WCAG20@w3.org to say whether you are
satisfied with the decision taken. Note that this list is publicly

We also welcome your comments on the rest of the updated WCAG 2.0
Public Working Draft by 29 June 2007. We have revised the guidelines
and the accompanying documents substantially. A detailed summary of
issues, revisions, and rationales for changes is at
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2007/05/change-summary.html . Please see
http://www.w3.org/WAI/ for more information about the current review.

Thank you,

(Issue ID: LC-837)

Part of Item:
Comment Type: substantive
Comment (including rationale for proposed change):

Conformance claims are complicated definitions. They are human
understandable however user will not make good use of them. And they
are not machine understandable because their definition and format are
not provided strictly.

Proposed Change:

Describing format of Conformance claims should be
determined strictly. If Conformance claims are understandable for a User Agent
(whether achieve a baseline or not), it is possible to cope with
that contents.

Response from Working Group:

Conformance to WCAG neither requires or prohibits the use of specific
formats for describing conformance. The working group expects to
provide informative information describing a variety of strategies for
documenting conformance in cooperation with the education and outreach
working group in the future.
