Summary of Issue: providing a multipage view rather than a single file version
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
When the "How to Meet SC X.Y.Z" link is selected from the WCAG 2.0 document, the full "How to Meet WCAG 2.0" document is loaded every time. When the connection is slow, it takes quite a while to load and the page jumps around until the browser can render the correct scrolling position within the display. One also ends up with more information than one had requested, which was just to learn more about implementing a specific Success Criterion.

Note: the "Understanding SC X.Y.Z" link takes users to a dedicated standalone page which has a clear and easy to use navigation, as well as more efficient orientation cues.

Proposed Change:
1. Provide a multipage view on the "How to Meet WCAG 2.0" document as the default presentation, as it is often easier to use. "How to Meet SC X.Y.Z" links in the WCAG 2.0 document should take users to the specific pages of the multipage resource.

2. Provide an option in the customizable interface to select a single page view for those who want a full listing (for example to print out a checklist of requirements to cover).

Note: the "Understanding WCAG 2.0" document also has an option to display it as a single file.
