Some thoughts:

10.1 Associate table cells and headers (P1)
- the wording of the two sufficient techniques is confusing. Do they 
both need to be done? The second one seems little help for users who are 
blind without the first. But other places where "Sufficient Techniques 
appear (e.g. 2.4) it seems that the implementer can choose one or the other.

10.2 Highlight selection, content focus, enabled elements, visited links
(P1)
- ok

10.3 Single highlight configuration (P2)
- these modifier-type checkpoints are always a bit odd - having too many 
of these is one reason why WCAG went to a three level system for each 
requirement.

10.4 Provide outline view (P2)
- Example technique #1 gives ideas for HTML - I wonder how well this 
would work in practice - is there any research people know of?

10.5 Provide link information (P3)
- lacks UI suggestions for displaying the additional info

10.6 Highlight current viewport (P1)
- shouldn't the images in the techs go with 10.2?

10.7 Indicate viewport position (P3)
- this checkpoint strikes me as bit disorganized - I wonder if we should 
mention following conventions for displaying scrollbars, progress, etc.?

Cheers,
Jan
