Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Edit down:

\"See the Overview of WCAG 2.0 Documents for an introduction to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and supporting documents. This Quick Reference is based on the 11 December 2007 WCAG 2.0 draft. It lists all of the requirements (called \"success criteria\") in WCAG 2.0, along with techniques to meet the requirements. You can customize this Quick Reference to list only the information that you are interested in. 

To use the Quick Reference: 

In the Customizing section, check the technologies and conformance levels you are interested in. The [Understanding Guideline x] and [Understanding Success Criterion x.x.x] links take you to the relevant section of the Understanding WCAG 2.0 document, which explains the intent of the guidelines and success criteria; provides examples and techniques; and describes how they help people with different disabilities. 


rationale: first say what this page/document is. simplify. cut down on wording. (having such a long introduction is counter to a primary goal with the \"Quick Reference\" which is to help make WCAG 2.0 approachable.)

Proposed Change:

This WCAG 2.0 Quick Reference lists all of the requirements (called \"success criteria\") from the latest _Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Working Draft_. It also lists techniques to meet the requirements, which link to more details. The \"Understanding\" links go to descriptions, examples, and resources. 


You can customize the list by selecting the technologies that apply to your web project, and the _levels_ and techniques that you want included in the list. 


See the _Overview of WCAG 2.0 Documents_ for an introduction to WCAG 2.0 and supporting documents, including more information about this Quick Reference.
