Comment (including rationale for proposed change):
Re the statement, \"Following these guidelines will also make your Web content more usable to many other users, including older users.\": Older users?! Really? How old? Over 40? 50? 60? Is there proof that \"older users\" need help using the Web just because they\'re over a certain age?
Delete this sentence.
Not all older people have disabilities. However, the percentage increases steadily and sharply with age. We have clarified this by changing the sentence to "Because many people develop vision, hearing, cognitive or motion impairments as they age, following these guidelines will make your Web content more usable by many older users."
