Dear Janina and Steve,

With cc to the DIAGRAM Standards working group and Judy Brewer,

The Association of American Publishers asked for guidance with images in
their publications. Of course, we based our recommendations on WAI developed
best practices. The publishers are looking for guidelines that directly
relate to the production of digital books using the EPUB specification,
which builds on W3C technologies. You can find what we produced at:


One of the tasks this year in the DIAGRAM Project is to make sure that we
are in harmony with W3C/WAI best practices. It seems that  with the working
draft mentioned below, now is a good time to initiate this discussion.

Thanks, Steve. On first glance-through, this WD looks very promissing.

We'll discuss possibilities on the TF call today. I think it's just,
just barely, possible to publish a heartbeat next Thursday ahead of
TPAC's publications moratorium. Else, it would have to be 5 November.
