Many thanks for this, but I'm now more confused.  When you follow the links
from http://www.w3.org/WAI/ and http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/comments/ and
http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8851 they don't take you through to the
diff marked versions, but to the 8 July versions which aren't diff marked.

In fact I couldn't find a link on the web site to the diff marked versions
at all.

I note the diff marked versions are dated as June 2010, whereas the ones
without the diff marks are dated 8 July.

It was these latter ones, which are the ones comment has been invited on via
the web site, which I was suggesting ought to be diff marked, not the ones
you sent me links for and which I couldn't find on the web site.

Hence my original suggestion still stands.

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,

Techniques for WCAG 2.0, Single file diff-marked version showing
revisions since 11 December 2008,

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.
