 Dear Harry Loots ,

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group has reviewed the

The Working Group's response to your comment is included below.

Please review it carefully and let us know by email at

Working Group Resolution (LC-2806):
Thank you for your comment.  The WAI groups regularly reference useful
external resources, and while there is possible benefit from greater
control over resources, there is a resource impact as well.   

We are undertaking an effort to ensure that external links are accurate
before publication and thank you for pointing out this dead link.
