Response from the Working Group
================================
The draft documents released for public review contain links to
diff-marked versions:

Understanding WCAG 2.0, Single file diff-marked version showing
revisions since 11 December 2008,
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2010/WD-UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20-20100708/complete-diff.html

Techniques for WCAG 2.0, Single file diff-marked version showing
revisions since 11 December 2008,
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2010/WD-WCAG20-TECHS-20100708/complete-diff.html

Unfortunately, the diff mark-up will not catch links whose only change
is to their targets.

While we believe that all links were reviewed and were either working
or removed when the draft documents were released, we have no way of
ensuring that those links continue to stay unbroken.
