hello Shawn and all,
here are some answers to your questions regarding WCAG 2.0 quick reference.


  > A. WCAG 2.0 Quick Reference
> Discuss suggestions for the next revision of the WCAG 2.0 Quick Reference.
> * Current version: http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/quickref/
> Questions:
> - How does the Introduction work for you?
SD: I can't remember how the text of the introduction from the previous 
version was. But I am surprised that the introduction begins with :
"See the Overview of WCAG 2.0 Documents
  for an introduction to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 
and supporting
documents."
Rationale : the reader receives an order before he has been told what 
the document is about.
Suggestion : Reverse second and first paragraph :
This Quick Reference is based on the 17 May 2007 WCAG 2.0 draft of the 
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. For an introduction to 
WCAG 2.0 and supporting
documents, see the Overview of WCAG 2.0 Documents".

> - Importance of being able to hide the Introduction? Feedback on how it 
> is currently implemented in the user interface?
SD: the introduction does not bother me, as I can skip it through 
navigation mechanisms.
> - Suggestions for the "Customizing this Quick Reference" section?
SD: sounds OK.
> - Benefits to having scripting functionality?
SD: it is useful to have both : if you have scripts abled or if you have 
scripts disabled.
> - Comments on the presence (not content) of the "Conformance 
> Requirements" section?
SD: I you had not asked about it, I would not have noticed it, as it is 
placed (for me) at the end of the very long document. I only would be 
aware of it if there was an internal menu listing to the different 
document sections.

Best
Sylvie
