Dear EOWG Participants,

If you are coming to the EOWG face-to-face meeting in January, please note 
the following message from Michael Cooper about a joint WAI meeting on 
Wednesday, 24 January 2007, on testing for conformance to accessibility 
guidelines. Please note that this will mainly be focused on the technical, 
not procedural, aspects of testing, such as creation of test samples and 
test cases.

If you are interested in learning more about the agenda and/or attending, 
please contact Michael as explained below, and also please note the very 
specific instructions for registering for the meeting if you decide to attend.

Please let us know if any questions.

Thank you,

- Judy
