ACTION: JR to propose a definition of programmatically determined.

programmatically determined (programmatically determinable)

When information is encoded in a way that allows different software, 
including assistive technologies, to extract and present the
information to users in different modalities. For non-Web-based user 
interfaces, this means making use of a platform accessibility 
architecture. For Web-based user interfaces, this means following WCAG 
2.0 so that the user agent can pass on the information.

ACTION: JR to write a definition for Display Preferences.

display preferences

The author(s) choice of settings (e.g., *display settings*, keyboard 
bindings, etc.).

display settings

The characteristics of a display that can be modified. The 
characteristics vary according to the modality of the display:

audio: the characteristics of audio output of music, sounds and speech. 
Examples include volume, speech voices, voice speed, and voice emphasis.

visual: the characteristics of the on-screen rendering of text and 
graphics. Examples include fonts, sizes, colors, spacing, positioning, 
and contrast.

tactile: the characteristics of haptic outputs. Examples include the 
magnitude of the haptic forces and the types of vibration.

ACTION: JR to write a proposed definition of "available"

Actually, I think because "available" is used in a variety of ways it 
would be better to wait for the "Understanding" bullets in the 
techniques - in the meantime here's a suggested wordsmithing of A.2.1.1:

A.2.1.1 Alternative Content: If an editing view renders Web content that 
has recognized alternative content, provide the alternative content to 
the author(s). (Level A)
