Eric,

I have just spent the last hour or so knocking around in the beta site. It
looks fantastic! I can only imagine how much work you have done and I am in
awe of your dedication and skill - thank you!!

I have not found links that don't work but I did want to ask about the
operation of the main menu. It seems a bit clunky to me to use the tab key
for everything. Also, once you open a submenu you are kind of trapped in
the submenu until you tab all the way out again- or did I miss a navigation
trick?

I much prefer the ease of navigating as it is implemented in the old
Knowbility site:
https://web.archive.org/web/20150207012937/http://knowbility.org:80/  The
tab key keeps you in the upper nav and the arrow keys take you into the
submenu, a browsing experince with less friction it seems to me.

Also the visual response to keyboard focus in Firefox is not equivalent to
the mouse hover state. Will that be addressed?

Thanks again Eric, excellent work!
Sharron
