The CLF 2.0 toolkit will allow departments and agencies to publish web sites that conform to the new Common Look and Feel Standards 2.0 (CLF 2.0). The CLF toolkit uses the Web Content Management (WCM) and Team Site capabilities of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS) and conforms to the World Wide Web (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 Priority 1 and 2 checkpoints, which are collectively known as WCAG 1.0 AA.
