<erich> +1

<allanj> jim: perhaps we leave fonts out, to get the

<Wayne> +1

<allanj> ... SC in the document.

<erich> Scribe: erich

<Zakim> steverep, you wanted to suggest we try to come together on
technology support wording

<shawn> +1 for not supporting giving a pass for technologies that don't
support it !

SR: Claim is if technology can support user styles than the SC is a pass,
and I have concerns with that

LC: We've had it both ways, that wording was insisted upon over the weekend

WD: I interpret it as if you are working with technology that has support
for some browsers, than every single browser for which it has support has
to work
... This does not deal with technologies for which there are no browsers
that support
... Earlier approach was that if it was not allowed on one agent, then we
couldn't require it on others

SR: Notes distinction between user agent support vs. technology support,
sees that as the issue

<Glenda> 4. Only Accessibility-Supported Ways of Using Technologies: Only
accessibility-supported ways of using technologies are relied upon to
satisfy the success criteria. Any information or functionality that is
provided in a way that is not accessibility supported is also available in
a way that is accessibility supported. (See Understanding accessibility

<laura> Hi Gregg:

AC: He talks about major web technologies, to which we could add

SR: Big difference is we're giving a blanket pass with no stipulations
behind it

JA: We have 13 versions of wording nobody can agree on

<laura> Proposal L text:

JA: We want the want that talks about accessibility supported, and leaves
out the technology stuff
... No matter what we say about the Fonts, until we get some metric, it's
just going to spin

<Glenda> My vote: Go with “L” version. Dropping font for now (to get this
SC in).

AC: Do we need to worry about spacing issues caused by replacing fonts?

+1 to Glenda

<laura> Up the spacing?

AC: If people have to leave a certain spacing around text, does it matter

<steverep> How about: No loss of content or functionality occurs when a
user agent.... (Proposal D but replace mechanism with user agent), then use
the bullets of J minus font for now

<JohnRochford> Dropping off now to attend a COGA call.

<JohnRochford> JohnRochford present+

WD: verbalizing potential metric formulation

<Glenda> I love this direction. Let’s leave font off…and see how far this
SC can take us! It will sure be a step forward.

+1 font off (for now)

<laura> WebAIM Feedback: “The variations introduced by font family
customization are, we believe, adequately covered by the manipulation of
line, letter, and word spacing.”
