Hi Gina,

I also agree with him about the problems listed. However, I always  
get worried when people suggest that a separate page is the best  
solution :( How many versions of a page do we need to create? One for  
each mobile class (or one for high-spec and one for low-spec), one  
for blind users, one for color-blind users, one for motor impaired  
users. What happens when the Web becomes even more ubiquitous, do we  
need to create one for the refrigerators :) He doesn't talk about  
transformation at all which is a bit disappointing.

Regards,
Yeliz.
