Hi all,

In order to synchronize the Techniques and Guidelines on the concept of 
applicability (i.e. that some success criteria won't apply to some 
tools) I propose to add a second bullet point to item 3 in 2.2.2 
Conformance Claims.

At the moment the item reads:

3. Required: A description of how the authoring tool meets each of the 
normative success criteria for each of the checkpoints that are required 
for the conformance level that has been specified by the conformance 
profile.
- For relative priority checkpoints this means describing how the 
requirements of the Content Type-Specific WCAG Benchmark are satisfied.

I would like to add this bullet:

- A success criterion is also considered to be met if it is not 
applicable to the authoring tool. For example, the success criterion for 
checkpoint A.2.9 begins, "If a preview is provided,...", so this success 
criterion would not apply to tools that do not include a preview 
feature. Additional guidance on the applicability of each success 
criterion in the guidelines is provided in the *Techniques*.



Thoughts?
