hi shawn,

will there also be an introduction to the WAI Working Groups? not about
their specific work (since each WG will have it's own homepage) but
rather an overview of which groups are available, what they generally
work on, and how to get involved.

as to the WCAG-into, here some thoughts:

* Side Bar
really dense and crowded! will users new to WCAG really want to access
all these resources from this page or should these links be better done
via the WG homepage? (there will also be the navigation bar eating away
additional space on the page)

* What is WCAG
it might be good to explain more about how the Guidelines and the
Techniques documents work together already at this stage

* WCAG 1.0 and WCAG 2.0
this might be better handled later in the document and with a different
heading such as current status (or work) for example.

* What is in WCAG 1.0
looks good. complements the "What is WCAG" section and therefore might
be better placed directly after it.

* Technical Specification Format
horrible title! (i know that you don't want word smithing right now but
i just couldn't resist flagging such a heading)

* Who develops WCAG
do we also want to explain how WCAG is developed? maybe in the
"introduction to the WAI groups" i mentioned above?

Per email sent earlier this week [1], please try to review the documents
below and send issues to the EOWG mailing list by Thursday 15 July for
discussion at the Friday 16 July teleconference.  Thanks! ~ Shawn

- Requirements for Introduction Pages for WAI Site:

Documents for review:
- Introduction to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG):
- Introduction to the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Overview Slide
	(updated version to be sent to list and posted soon)
- Introduction to Notes on Accessibility Features of W3C Technology:
	(updated version to be sent to list and posted soon)

Questions for review:
* Is it easy for people who are new to Web accessibility to understand?
* Is there any unexplained jargon? 
* Does the tone work?
* Does it provide adequate introduction without getting too bogged down
in details that are covered elsewhere?

The following pages are early drafts that have not yet been revised
based on recent WSTF discussion and are not ready for detailed review;
however, it is useful to skim them as they will follow a similar format:
- Introduction to User Agent Accessibility Guidelines (UAAG):
- Introduction to Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG):
- Introduction to Web Accessibility:
