1. Debrief from discussion with EOWG
 - Frames:
  * In EOWG it was argued that it is difficult to make frames accessible for very large print
  * Frames are rarely used in modern designs but are still a fundamental accessibility barrier
  * It may be better to construct the BAD site without frames but instead implement an example
  * A possible implementation would be in the pop-up help page that is already on the wish list
  RESOLUTION: BAD TF will consider a frames example at a later stage in the project (wish list)

  * JavaScript drop-down menu
  ACTION: Shadi add to menu page

2. Article Page by Steve
 - Form:
  * Only an example from real experience and sent to the group for demonstration purposes
  ACTION: Steve will separate form from article page, Tanguy will see what he can reuse
 - Other aspects:
  * uses table layout, we agreed to use DIV layout on that page (table layout on forms page)
