Thanks Richard. These are excellent points. This is my first time doing a
techniques document. So  I appreciate this good feedback and will
incorporate it all in next version I know you asked some questions but I am
going to answer via the draft. If that is okay. Thanks again, Debra

      Hi Debra,

      Does reading level and/or vocabulary come into play?

      Also you talk about keeping the main information in the top left for
      left to right languages. What about rich internet applications where
      there are regions of the page of importance? Today, static documents
      are often foun in the middle of pages with navigation sections on the
      left, banners on the top, etc. How should that be structured or
      accessed? Is it preferred that things be linearized by region?

      I am also reading this:

      "· the message is clear


            · extraneous information is removed
            · one message is delivered at a time
            · Key points are separated out
            · Lists and bullet points are used
            · Order of statements is logical
            · Repeat important points to aid in comprehension"

      Is it preferred that we use text emphasis for important points by
      visually calling the text out?

      Thanks,
      Rich
