Imagine you skim the document by reading headers...

Sailesh had difficulty with the UAAG Intro page (at
http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/sketchpad/uaag) because he couldn't find
the document links - because they had no header.

I think we do need a header there; however, you could find better
wording (e.g. "About the Slide Show" or "Purpose" or ...).

Good point. I do think we need to re-think the title for this. It really
is a presentation - albeit self-guided... ah, well, probably not worth
major change.

How about proposing your title change to the _EOWG_ list - in follow up
to the discussion from Friday's teleconference (minutes at:

Also, Judy calls it a "slide set" but I wonder how jargony that is?
(really, slides is such an outdated term! :)

> 	*	Do we want to let people modify the slide show?

Yes. Very few people will want to present the entire slide show as it is
in its entirety. We want to make it easy for them to copy and use some
of it. Otherwise, they will have to retype and are more likely to make
errors and omissions.

You are correct, we usually do not write out the URI. Look at the
Requirements to see if there is any reason we would want to in this

We have on the wish list an option to print pages with all the links
"spelled out" (that is, include the URI) - but that is a long way off.
