Default WCAG 2.0 accessibility standard published

From the W3C announcement:

"The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Working Group announces the publication of WCAG 2.0 as a W3C Proposed Recommendation on 3 November 2008. WCAG 2.0 explains how to make Web sites, applications, and other content accessible to people with disabilities, and older users. See:
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/PR-WCAG20-20081103/

"Proposed Recommendation" means that the technical material of WCAG 2.0 is complete and it has been implemented in real sites. Information about implementations and changes since the last publications is available in the:
"Status of this Document" section
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/PR-WCAG20-20081103/#status

The next step is the final publication; which we expect in December 2008.*

W3C WAI encourages you to start implementing WCAG 2.0 now; see:
"What are the benefits of using WCAG 2.0?" in the WCAG 2 FAQ
http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/wcag2faq-update.html#start

The different WCAG 2.0 documents that the WCAG Working Group updated with this publication are introduced in:
Overview of WCAG 2.0 Documents
http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/wcag20.php

A key tool for using WCAG 2.0 documents, which was previously called the "Quick Reference", is:
How to Meet WCAG 2.0: A customizable quick reference to WCAG 2.0 requirements...
