Hi - another thing on our plate is to do the techniques for Guideline
2.1. Since we won't have a call in time to assign action items and
whatnot, I'd like to ask for volunteers to help out. We only have to do
"sufficient" techniques. For SC 2.1.1 <http://tinyurl.com/alotf> this

* Using keyboard-controllable event handlers for all functionality.

We also need to do the failures, I think. These are:

* Failure due to using only pointing-device-specific event handlers
(including gesture) for a function.
* Failure due to using plugins in a way that traps users inside plugin

Luckily for us, the guide doc for 2.1.2 says the techniques are the same
as for 2.1.1, so we don't have to worry about that. Can we have
volunteers?  The procedure is to use the Techniques template in the WIKI
<http://tinyurl.com/dgcd7>. Refer to Tips for editing techniques
<http://tinyurl.com/78v78> for detailed instructions.
