Hello, all - My comments are below Carol's.

Yes I think they are too similar - though it doesn't help that visually
in the email they are listed on top of each other.  I know we've gone
back
and forth on this, but I think it would be ok to remove WAI from all of
these names.  There could be confusion by users, but I don't think so. 
The most important one that we need to be specific about is the Search.

Looking at Search again I recommend we rename it: "Search W3C Sites".
That
way it is clear that it is not a search of only WAI or sites other than
WAI, but that since WAI is a W3C site, it is included in the search.

____________AGREE with Carol, though would keep "WAI" in first item -
some clarity needed there. Links could be:
- WAI Translations
- Contact Us
- Site Help
- Site Map
- Search W3C Sites


>* bumped "Guidelines & Techniques" up a level, so top level is now:

>	- WAI Groups
...
How about just "Resources"?  I don't think the word "Supporting" helps
the
description.  It seems redundant - resources by definition hopefully are
supportive.

____________AGREE with Carol. "Supporting" implies that these Resources
support something else, and in the order of the links I would assume
they support the guidelines and techniques. They are not necessarily
supportive, but are important in themselves.
