I hoped to do more, but the meeting is about to start.

*Reporter with repetitive stress injury*

I would have thought that today for most people a blog or an online 
forum would be more recognisable scenarios. I assume that this is about 
an embedded WYSIWYG editor but that isn't clear. Otherwise I think that 
he would submit articles in a word processor format, not HTML.

The opening sentence "submit his articles in HTML for publishing in an 
on-line journal" suggests that the paragraph is going to talk about 
submitting articles, but it goes on to talk about streaming audio. It 
might be better to move this to the second paragraph. Then open with 
"Mr. Jones is a reporter who, over his twenty-year career, he has 
developed repetitive stress injury..."

It might be useful to say that he only finds it useful to learn the 
accesskeys for sites he uses regularly, but that some have "skip to main 
content" links that are helpful.
