Compliance with Section 508 (of the August 1998 amendment of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act) is required for all US federal government CWE sites, and highly recommended for all other sites. Users (which will be the content developers) should review the site for more details, and to make sure their work meets with requirement.    (9Z)

When users author content that involve non-text elements to convey information, like color pallettes, images & graphics, multimedia presentation, image maps, tables, frames, and when making use of scripts, plug-ins, applets, forms and/or timed responses, they should take responsibility to ensure section 508 compliance, if it is so required. Section 1194.22 - Web-based Internet Information and Applications of the Section 508 VPAT should be referenced.    (A0)

Include at least the following information:    (A4)

History Section    (AA)

There will be times when mailing list discussions lead to important changes that either directly or indirectly affect the Wiki. For example, we may discuss a new approach. Once we reach a decision, we would have to make a major update to a particular Wiki page. When this happens, it's good practice to create a History section on that page, and include a link to the relevant discussion (at the discussion forum archives.) That way, we capture why things are the way they are.    (AB)
