Hi Jeanne,

1. There are images that do not load in the explainer: [Screenshot of 
said missing images](https://cln.sh/V72FRISRjMoSFHbYGgeG)

2. I want to strongly suggest that this document is not published as a 
note but as a WAI document on the WAI site, this increases the chances 
of it being actually found and also makes it more readable – /TR/ 
documents are not.

3. This Explainer should probably replace, augment, or inform this page: 
https://www.w3.org/WAI/standards-guidelines/wcag/wcag3-intro/

As an interested lurker, the amount of information around WCAG 3 is 
already quite overwhelming and, in my opinion, having it strewn about in 
more places does not feel helpful.

👋 Eric
