Hi, Lynne, 
we're looking in getting these formatted according to WAI style +
getting corrected consistency/links between guidelines and checkpoints. 
Thank you for comments.

I have looked at the WAI Guidelines and although they have explanation
included with the Guidelines/ckpoints, the explanation comes directly
after the Guideline, followed by the list of Ckpoints.  I didn't see
anyplace where explanation was integrated into the Ckpoints.  The WAI's
formatting seems to be (which I'm suggesting for us) GUIDELINE,
explanation, CKPOINTS.

	For now, just a comment on one part of this...

		Since there is some much explanation and rationale
information interwoven with the Guidelines/checkpoints, it would be
easier (especially to implement) to have the Guidelines/checkpoints all
together - perhaps at the end of the document or at the end of each
section.  So each section of the document would contain the rationale
(background), explanation etc., and then the guidelines/ckpoint (if they
aren't all together at the end of the document).

	We are emulating the style of WAI standards -- see for example
WCAG1.0 [1].  In these, the Guidelines/Checkpoints are interleaved with
prose.  They also provide a condensed tabular form [2], with only the
succinct bits.
	We are identifying the Gd and Ck with markup, so we can do the
same thing using XSLT stylesheets -- full version, plus tabular summary
-- without replicating content.  (In fact, not only are we emulating the
style, we are borrowing the CSS stylesheets for presentation).
	Thanks also for your comments on inconsistency of the
presentation style -- we'll need to have a look at that aspect before
