<gregg> /me the perception of the color attributes is essential to

<gregg> understanding a piece of content

proposal for change to definition of phrase "information that is conveyed by color"

resolution: change definition of phrase "information that is conveyed by color" to "information presented in a manner that depends on the ability to perceive color"

Update on status/abstract

Update on Intro/Conformance

Updated Requirements Doc <http://tinyurl.com/mkdlm>

Resolution: Adopt Requirements Doc with discussed edits <http://tinyurl.com/mkdlm>

Misc. Questions for 20 April Telecon Survey: <http://tinyurl.com/pr8u8>

Proposed GENERAL FAILURE Technique for How to meet 3.2.1: Using "activate" rather than "focus" as a trigger for changes of context

the item on the questionnaire was misidentified as a failure; it's actually a general technique

resolution: accept technique with modified example: A page pops up a new window only when the user clicks(or uses spacebar) on a button rather than using onfocus to pop up a new window.

Proposed SCRIPT Technique for How to meet 3.2.5: Using an onchange event on a select element without causing a change of context

resolution: Accept with edits: Modify step 3 to "Check that the matching option values are displayed in the other select element." Modify step 5 to "Check that the the matching option values are still displayed in the associated element."

Proposed GENERAL FAILURE Technique for How to meet 4.1.1: Failure due to insufficient information in DOM to determine one-to-one relationships (e.g., between labels with same id)

resolution: accept with edits by Christophe

<Zakim> wendy, you wanted to say that should record not only resolution to adopt requirements but to publish an updated working draft.

Requirements doc revisited

resolution: adopt requirements document and publish as a note


resolution: adopt introduction/conformance as edited
... editorial changes on LC drafts okay without group review

<Becky> some people have been spending time creating pages rather than reviewing them :-)
