Re: Evalutation Tools List, suggestions

Hello again to the group after my prolonged absence.

On the Simple Search form, the list of languages is longer than on the 
Advanced one. I think it should be the other way around. I don't think 
Brazilian is a language; perhaps in the final version the options will 
be restricted to values present in the database.

I agree with Justin (what I think he implies) that the difference 
between HTML and XHTML is not useful. It would neeed some explanation 
about what it means. Does it mean that the page is validated as XHTML?

"Languages" whould perhaps specify "Interface languages". As Justin 
points out about "Web Technologies", perhaps it needs explaining somewhere.

I think it is important to link from the form to the "Selecting Web 
Accessibility Evaluation Tools" page, as criteria like "User Interfaces" 
and "Functionality" are very difficult to understand otherwise.

Spidering: I think that this is a useful criterion, and essential for 
large-scale evaluations, but it itsn't mentioned. It's also important to 
know when links are in Flash content or PDF rather than HTML.

I hope to be on the call today to discuss this.

best regards,
