1. confirm previous decisions (http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/UCD/design-space.html#v-params)

1.a. font size
"OK to have font a little smaller than default; however, not too small ! (e.g., at least 0.9em/10pts for and 0.8em/9pts for navigation)"
- probably want the font a little smaller than default for impression of "good" modern design
- plan to have font size toggle on all pages (e.g., http://wired.com/) CALL FOR ACTION ITEM TAKER

1.b. link affordance 
"must have links in text high affordance (that is, the text is clearly a link), probably blue and underlined (links in navigation areas can be different)"
- add "link colours should not stand out too much from text" (e.g., not orange!) as would interrupt reading where there are links within paragraphs of resource documents
- links in navigation areas not underlined (to reduce clutter), underlined with focus

---
2. Navigation interaction & visual design

2.a. issues with navigation on left, e.g., 640X480 resolution

2.b. hierarchical navigation, annotated nav pages, icons/affordance

2.b.i. titling annotated navigation pages, e.g.:
- Getting Started Links
- Getting Started Pages
- Getting Started Materials
- Getting Started Documents

---
3. minor proposed revisions to discuss:

3.a. translations
I18N strongly recommends listing them near the top, and can list the language. Prototype at http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/intro/accessibility.php.
- discuss format (e.g., versus list at end, e.g., http://www.w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/References/QuickTips/Overview.php#translist [if working :-[
- what to do with lists longer than X?

3.b. navigation bottom static bits (site map... search)
- Help on WAI Site ? Help with WAI Site? WAI Site Help?
- WAI OK?
- WAI Site Map (expand all)
- order

3.c. About WAI
previously was a combination info page & annotated navigation page. if clarifying nav pages, need to change.
- "About WAI Links" and "About WAI" OK?

3.d. Supporting Resources
- concern just "Resources" likely interpreted as links to others sites, or references
- need to check card sorting results &/or do quick activity

===
FYI, To be Completed:
* refine visual design
* design search functionality & UI
* add font sizing in top bar
