PROBLEM: collapse/expand link undecipherable if one cannot read document 
source

currently, one can expand or collapse individual comments using a hyperlink
whose hyperlink text is "(-)" or "(+)", which constitues ASCII art, which must
be either

1. glossed using ABBR

<ABBR title="Collapse">(-)</ABBR></a>
<ABBR title="Expand">(+)</ABBR>


2. use the actual terms "expand" and "collapse" as the hyperlink text


3. use an expand/collapse graphic with proper alt text

<img src="collapse.png" alt="collapse">
<img src="expand.png" alt="expand">


RECOMMENDATION: of the 3 approaches outlined above, i strongly recommend #2
(use the actual terms "expand" and "collapse") because one cannot count on a
user of assistive technology to have abbreviations set to auto-expand, although
it is a valid solution to the problem of indecipherable hyperlink text
