To expand on that (and at the risk of being uncharacteristically rude), 
this list is not a WCAG helpline. If you have some very specific 
concerns because, even after best efforts on your part, you're having 
difficulty understanding how a Success Criterion or a non-normative, 
suggested technique might affect a very specific aspect of your site, 
then people here are glad to give their opinion (again, mostly 
non-normative). Otherwise, may I humbly suggest that you get an external 
consultant who specialises in WCAG 2.0 audits/assessments to help you?
