hello all,

I just found time to read again eowg's comments from last year on WCAG 2.0 
working draft of June 24, 2003. Comments located at:

I think that some comments still apply to WCAG 2.0's new draft.

For example comment 11 in section presentation that states:
"11. Make it easier to find specific accessibility topics within the 
document, for instance, by providing more links to the WCAG 1.0 to WCAG 2.0 
transition map, or consider adding mechanisms such as a topic index in 
which people could search for the kinds of terms that they think in terms 
of when actually designing sites, e.g. "navigation," "forms," etc."

Comment 17 is also still an issue:
"17. Better explain the transition between the normative content of WCAG 1.0
and WCAG 2.0. Provide some explanation for the substantial change in the
numbers of guidelines and checkpoints between the 1.0 and 2.0 versions. 
Also make sure that the terms "normative" and "non-normative" are clearly 
defined. Many readers do not know what these terms mean in general, nor 
what they mean specifically in the context of this document, nor in the 
transition between WCAG 1.0 and 2.0."
