Issue: Highlights on WAI home page

WSTF is considering having highlights on the WAI home page.

- provide a space to address "hot" topics
- provide a way to showcase different resources, since many people don't
know what we have
- make the home page more "alive" with timely topics that change

Examples of things that might go in highlights area:
- blurb on newly finished documents, such as standards harmonization
- XYZ government adopted WCAG, with a link to Policies
- technique addressing hot issue
- tip from a document, such as Evaluating Web Sites for Accessibility,
with a link to that document

- would probably often have two highlights: 1. that stays longer and is
a current high priority issue, such as standards harmonization, and 2,
that changes more frequently, perhaps every week, such as a technique or
- would not replace news/announcements as is currently on home page


Issue: Quote on WAI home page

The current WAI home page (http://www.w3.org/WAI/) has in a prominent
position this quote: "The power of the Web is in its universality.
Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect." --
Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web

Question: On the new WAI home page, should this quote be: a. above the
fold, b. below the fold, c. not on home page (on another page, such as
Introduction to Web Accessibility or About WAI).

Discussion: @@ ... doesn't say what WAI is about or what the site is
about... was important when WAI started to give credibility & that's not
as important now... takes up fair amount of space and doesn't give a
whole lot of "umph" if you don't know who he is & many don't...  [sorry,
i'm too exhausted to do this now :-[
