Hi everyone,

There is a new Editor's Draft of ATAG2.0 available at:


NOTE: This is the document Jutta would like you all to review. However, 
since it has taken a bit longer to get out that we hoped, please just do 
what you can for this coming Monday.

The changes added recently include many minor editorial changes and 
several changes that should be called out as editorial proposals (but 
that I don't believe change the meaning of anything):

1. making the glossary changes and linking instance of every defined 
term using WCAG2's less obtrusive style.
2. The Notes section in the introduction.
3. Note 1 in the Definition of Authoring Tools
4. ATAG 2.0 Layers of Guidance section in the Introduction to mirror the 
section in WCAG 2.0
5. Rework of Rationales: A.2.2, A.2.3, A.3.1,
6. B.1.1 - changed from referencing by level - since referenced WCAG 2.0 
"Accessibility Supported" concept is not broken out by level.
7. Levels of Conformance section has some changes and explantory text 
suggested by a commenter (Anna Z.).

And there was also a more substantive (but INFORMATIVE, not normative) 

1. Levels of Conformance section has some WCAG2 mirroring text to 
explain why we set the levels the way we did.

For completeness, Jeanne has generated a differences log at:
