Fwd: EOWG: Substantially updated Standards Harmonization document

Dear EOWG:

Thanks for the feedback so far; it's quite helpful.

Per my note Tuesday night, I've made some relatively minor changes 
this evening (Boston time) to the draft for review, based on comments 
received so far.. I've listed these here; and noted some issues below 
for discussion in our meeting on Friday.

Changes to the review draft include:
- added a time stamp to the date stamp in the "Editor's Draft 
Updated" box near the top, to make it easier to find the specific 
time of the version you're commenting on;
- updated contributors
- replaced en dashes and open em dashes with closed em dashes (no 
spaces surrounding; & more widely accepted style)
- reduced and redistributed bolding in executive summary
- cleaned up typos noted by Denis;
- developed alternative version of introduction to show Wayne's 
suggestion for "at a Glance" (this version does not include most 
other changes at this time)
- added another benefit that we'd discussed but hadn't made it into 
the draft: "They can also take advantage of these collaboratively 
developed resources as Web technologies and accessibility solutions 
evolve in the future."

For discussion in teleconference:
- section headings work well enough now?
- singular/plural guidelines/standards usage?
- use at a glance text, vs. examples and principles?
- redundancy & length of exec summ?
- clarity of certain of the standards harmonization arguments.
- how to fix "In developing policies for Web accessibility, many 
regional, national, and local governments have taken advantage of the 
broadly accepted worldwide standards, the W3C's Web Content 
Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0."
- terseness of page contents box
- further reductions of boldface?
- regional, national, local, and organizational policies?
- education and training? training resources?
- are the "steps" in the last section appropriate and non-redundant?


- Judy

>For change requests that seem clear and straightforward to make, and
