Re: Comments on Guidelines 2.1 and 2.2 of 17 June AU Guidelines

These are proposed changes to checkpoint text, that are in some cases

proposed, to bring the grammar in line, changed "which" to "that", and noted
the rest as issues for the group.

  1) In rationale text, I find the sentence that begins

  2) Checkpoint 2.1.2: Change from:
     "The author must be able to change the editing view without
      changing the presentational markup defined for the document
      currently being edited."
     "Ensure that the author may adjust the document

  7) Checkpoint 2.2.2: Change "Extensions to W3C Recs"
      to "Proprietary extensions to W3C Recs". I'm not sure
      why this is limited to W3C Recommendations, in fact.
