Chaps,

As per my action, I have created a prototype (well actually it's a full-working instance, since I just bent the algorithms of the previous index) for a replacement for the topic index.  As mentioned on the call, this is a pure and simple alphabetic index such as you would find at the back of a book. (Some graphics at the top of the page are missing at this location, but otherwise it should work up to the point where you click to go to an actual document.)

(Compare with the current http://www.w3.org/International/resource-index)

Anyone got any issues with that?

Note that a side effect of this new approach is that it is much easier to index new documents.

If no objections are raised, I'll make it live in place of the current Topic Index around the middle of next week.

ALSO:

Note that I have rearranged the main site navigation links.  Currently the list is:

Home  About  Groups  Topics  Techniques  Resources  News   

I propose to change this to

Home  Resources  Techniques  Index  News  About  Groups   

throughout the site.  I think this makes the site look less organisation-centric, and more like a place to find resources.

I will implement that at the same time as the new index, if there are no objections.

Cheers,
RI
