Response from the Working Group
================================
It has been our goal to produce PDF versions of the guidelines with a
layout optimized for print. However, due to lack of resources we have
been unable to accomplish that in the expected time frame. Therefore,
for the moment we have produced PDF versions that are essentially
"printouts" of the HTML. In the future if we are able to make enhanced
PDF versions available we will post those. Meanwhile the preliminary
PDF versions are available from
http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/versions/.
