Cool. They will either be .avi / .mov. Or I may embed them in an .swf
wrapper and host them for download. Not sure yet.

I have much footage of real world user tests that we have taken for our
clients but that would not be appropriate for this domain.

Or that you would create it?

I will.

Yes.

Thats what I hope to achieve. The tests will take place on the 28th and
I hope to look at header/id combinations, use of @summary and @longdesc.

If you know sites that you think implement these features in a good way,
or indeed a bad way please send them to me off list and I may use them
in my tests.
