Folks,

[A] RESOURCES

I preparation for discussion on Wednesday, here is a proposal.

We currently show resources for each technique in the techniques document.  This has two disadvantages:

[1] it makes the document longer and less easy to read

[2] it cannot be updated after the document has been published - eg. when a really useful new FAQ appears

I therefore propose that we use a separate file for the resources.  To that end, I have spent much of today sprucing up and fixing the previously existing resources list that was coupled with the outline document. http://www.w3.org/International/geo/html-tech/resources

(Note that it is in a new location, too.)

I suggest we link to this document from the techniques doc.


[B] TECHNIQUES INDEX

I also created an index that will link users to topics in the techniques docs more easily.  It will cover all techniques documents, and will be a task-based equivalent to our current topic index.  It also does two more things:

[1] strengthens the visibility of and ease of access to the outline

[2] provides a quick way of accessing the resources

See http://www.w3.org/International/technique-index

It is currently linked from 'Techniques' under 'Resource Type' on the top right of the home page, but I will hopefully improve on this as the home page is redesigned.
