Or is it impossible to have a website for phantasy comforming to level 3?

This might be too crazy for words when phantasy is forbidden.

Hi Ineke,


Please note that this was a level 3 SC.  That is - only sites that want to
really go to extra effort to make thing accessible would do this.  


If they do - then they would have to define any words they use that are not
in existing dictionaries or 'idoms' that make sense in the phantasy but not
outside of it, etc.


If they do not want to do this - they do not have to.  And I can see no
conditions under which phantasy sites would ever be required to conform to
Level 3.   So it is just guidance on what to do if you want to.


Also - we have not made a final decision on whether one would have to do all
of level 3 to 'conform at level 3'.  So there is some chance (unknown at
this point) that one could conform at level 3 without doing every level 3


Did I miss something?  Or misunderstand something?
