Item 4 on our agenda for tomorrow
is a discussion of progress in the WCAG 2.0 Working Draft.

Actually this may be more of an orientation to resources available, and 
status of changes related to EOWG comments, plus background for EOWG to 
bear in mind when preparing for another in-depth review once the latest 
WCAG 2.0 Working Draft becomes available sometime in July.

Because of the volume of comments received and issues that WCAG WG has been 
working on in the interim, WCAG WG has not yet processed many of EOWG's 
comments from last September -- including editorial changes recommended to 
the introduction -- but is tracking them and plans to address them in 
upcoming versions. However there are some areas where changes that the 
group has made or is considering are related to comments that EOWG submitted.

URI's for relevant documents follow. I will provide a brief orientation and 
suggest a few areas that we may want to look at together, including the 
current guideline text and success criteria text, and the two last 
documents which are marked with **. We should discuss how we would like to 
proceed with another EOWG review after the next public working draft 
becomes available.
