> EOWG reply on Comment 3 accessibility-supported technologies:
> It looks like most of this has been moved to Understanding; which some in EOWG strongly support. We may have additional comments on the wording in Understanding later.
> One minor thing we note in the WCAG 2.0 document: The first part of the Conformance section still says, "This section...  It also explains what it means for Web content technologies to be accessibility-supported..." -- while it is mentioned here, it is really explained in Understanding now.
