Hi,

Refs:
  - <http://www.w3.org/WAI/demos/bad/draft/2009/tmp/survey_before>
  - <http://www.w3.org/WAI/demos/bad/draft/2009/tmp/survey_after>

I've updated the survey page, based on previous input and discussion:
  - reduced the redundancy in the examples for barriers in forms
  - changed questions to match "city parks teaser" on the homepage

This page is intended to primarily show the following barriers:
  - missing labels for form controls (questions 1, 2, and 3)
  - controls and descriptions not in context (question 1)
  - unnecessary drop-down combo box (questions 2 and 3)
  - overly complex selection matrix despite labels (question 4)
  - no reset button, and submit is at an unexpected location
  - it is unclear if any input fields are required, if at all
  - TBD: the form script will output cryptic messages and highlight 
missing input using color only (no redundant indication)

The visual styling (especially on the after version) still needs a lot 
of cleaning up (and the scripts are missing) but I'd like to get some 
input on the demonstrated barriers and repairs.

Note: I'm concerned that we may be promoting people to think that combo 
boxes are not allowed. Any ideas of showing an inaccessible versus an 
accessible combo box? -Maybe one that is not sorted versus one that is 
sorted and grouped using option group elements?

Best,
   Shadi
