I sent comments in [1] on this proposal. Ray's proposal is
very thin on explanation for the uninitiated. I'm not sure
how this proposal intersects with the subsequent discussion
on 17 Jan [1]. From your summary [3], it sounds like the

I recently visited Microsoft (Mac IE), Netscape, Adobe,
and Apple. I am hoping that as a result of these visits,
we will receive evaluations of Mac IE, Netscape, Adobe's
SVG Viewer, and Apple's Quicktime player. I also expect

No progress here from my end. I am hoping that JG

some point:

  a) "If you satisfy 508 requirements and these X
      extra things, you can get UAAG 1.0 Level A
      (for the following content types labels, etc.)."

  b) "If you conform to UAAG 1.0 in the following way,
      you also conform to 508 if you do these extra

I think that UAAG 1.0 and Section 508 are sufficiently
different that documents a and b may be suprisingly
