WCAG 2.0 23 November 2005 Working Draft
The WCAG working group are looking for feedback on the current draft, including the supporting documents. A list of open, pending, and closed issues can be found in the issue tracking document for WCAG 2.0, along with a document that tracks the history of changes to WCAG 2.0 working drafts. Comments are requested by 21 December 2005 to
Understanding WCAG 2.0
Understanding WCAG 2.0 is the first draft of a support document that lists all of the success criteria for each guideline in WCAG 2.0. Each success criterion listed in this document includes key terms, intent, benefits for people with disabilities, and techniques that the working group deem appropriate to achieve the success criterion. The description of how to meet the appropriate success criterion is linked to from the main WCAG document.
HTML Techniques for WCAG 2.0
This document contains a list of HTML techniques, with some CSS and ECMAScript techniques, that the working group deem appropriate for conformance to WCAG 2.0. There is room for a lot more techniques in this document, so if you have any suggestions or techniques that would be appropriate for conformance to WCAG 2.0, the working group would appreciate your input.
