Re: WCAG 2.0 checklist

Indeed the checklist for WCAG 2.0 is "How to Meet WCAG 2.0: A customizable quick reference..." at:
We are collecting requirements and ideas for the next generation of that (including making it work better as a checklist in different situations), and welcome your ideas to <EMAIL REMOVED>

The updated mapping between WCAG 1.0 & 2.0 is at http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/from10/comparison/

The best place to start for information related to WCAG is the Overview at http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/wcag
If you can't find something from there, please let me know -- and CC <EMAIL REMOVED> to have it publicly archived or <EMAIL REMOVED> if you don't want it public.

p.s. Have you checked out the WAI website navigation redesign to see what new documents are available? See http://www.w3.org/WAI/yourWAI (shortened: http://bit.ly/yourWAI )
