Hi Shadi, Group.

First: I really appreciate all feedback we get, and some points are
valid (as I will show below), but this group was scheduled until
December 2008 and is now in its second year. There are people writing
whole specs in that time.

We archived a lot, and a lot more then we were asked to do, and the
group works great together, but most of those suggestions shouldn’t be
presented to us a month prior to finish but a month after start.

> # Page design and navigation
>  - evaluation pages should be in the BAD design (not the WAI design)

We don’t have something like that. I said that before. When we
developed the Navigation it was singled out. Everything we do now with
the overview pages will result in pages that will look out of place

>  - make a "show/hide report" button (like "show/hide annotations")

Totally wrong as the report will not be shown inline, so it isn’t
shown, it is just linked to. We discussed that already…

>  - add W3C/WAI branding to all Demo pages (logos on top-left side)

Which logos exactly. Why didn’t we know about that requirement earlier?

>  - reflect the current location in the <h1>

This was planned anyway, if I recall directly

> and in the page title [1]

We do that.

> # Evaluation report
>  - for consideration/editors discretion:
>  -- remove indentation (for SC and Techs) in the description column
>  -- add indentation before the GL/SC numbers in the "#" column

Would that really add any benefit? I don’t think it does.

>  -- n/a should be in lower case and grayed (to be easier to skim)

“Easier to skim” is subjective, isn’t it? I don’t think it’s
necessary, but it won’t hurt.

>  -- use progressive color shading to better indicate the levels [2]

Don’t think we need that. Colors are too bold in Liams example for my taste…

> [1] consider imitating a browser chrome in the Demo area, to show the "Page
> Titled" accessibility requirement between before/after versions

No, we don’t need this. (I don’t think I have to say that this will
confuse people, then you get into the problem which operating system
to mimic. And it is a code demo, so we shouldn’t introduce even more
elements that have nothing to do with the demo all together. Currently
I’m even thinking we should remove everything that is not the actual
demo – heading, footers, annotations – as it really, really seem to
confuse people. We will not please everybody.)
