Hi BADders,

I hope you are all playing Micahel Jackson's 'Bad' in the background 
when you're working on this.

Some things I noticed:

1) http://www.w3.org/WAI/demos/bad/draft/2009/before/home/annotations, 
http://www.w3.org/WAI/demos/bad/draft/2009/after/news/annotations and so on.
The yellow Show Annotations link - no annotations appeared. Not apparent 
that they appeared either (until I scrolled down and then switched it 
off and scrolled down again to play spot the difference... Remove this 
if there are to be no annotations on these pages? Or are you about to 
annotate?

2) general: the skip link doesn't work in Chrome. Stupid 
Chrome/Safari/Webkit. See our lovely article on just this subject at 
http://www.communis.co.uk/blog/2009-06-02-skip-links-chrome-safari-and-added-wai-aria

3) On accessible news page, brain donations graph (whose sick humour is 
this, anyway?), the graph values are presented as figures. Better to 
present as table below? Or via a links (see these results as a table)? 
Is nicer for cognitively impaired users? What did they think?

Agree with Andrew's comments regarding the form, but not on his comments 
regarding linking out to e.g. Google. I think it's fine. stick a 
nofollow, noindex on the links if worried, and a 'we don't endorse' 
caveat in the notes... but amn not convinced it's necessary.

Keep up the good work!

Liam
