Except for checkpoint 4.2, it's good to go.

checkpoint 4.2


any objections to substituting the new wording and leave w/editorial note?

discussion of issues

Resolved changes to make to get this draft to TR

pending issues

pending issues

all sent to mailing list, no discussion, so hopefully not controversial

179. location attribute on meta element

issue #179 location attribute on meta element

michael found that it works in certain situations, but don't recommend making this change.

resolved: close issue 179

184. MathML in HTML techs?

proposal: remove mathml, editorial note: we'll link to it.

counter: move it only after we have someplace to move it to

resolved: close issue 184

action: WAC write editorial note in html techs that says "mathml will move to mathml techniques once that document exists"

188. Delete section on using object instead of iframe?

main goal of iframe is that content comes from diff uri

concerned about removing if not widely supported. if in specs, but not supported, then note that not supported.

iframe isn't inaccessible

action wac: (issue 188) research what exactly we want to delete related to object and iframe. not sure which example refering to.

256. CSS to hide Client Side Image Maps

depends on which version

not a reliable technique

resolved: close issue 256

259. Empty form controls still a problem?

micahel's errata - agreed not a problem. not agreed on errata.

resolved: new issue in wcag 1.0 errata for michael's proposed errata re: empty form controls, close issue 259

285. Core Checkpoints and Core Techniques

General techniques?

as well as technology-specific techniques

if all are technology focused, x-technology points out more clearly that it spans the other tech documents

"core" conveys something about things being "bedrock" that "general" and "x-tech" don't capture.

some of tech-specific would be core under that defn

resolved: agreement to rename "core techniques", question about title. current candidates: general and cross-technology. please review proposal on the list and respond in email.
