Hi,

Another issue - by siting the date at the RHS, we are saying it is not
particularly important to some groups of people (screen magnifier users and
several groups with cognitive and/or reading disabilities).

Just thought I should raise this to ensure we have an informed decision.

Could we put the date right aligned on the same line visually as the
title of the highlight,not just below it, but have it come after in
the flow of the HTML?

This would seem to save even more vertical space.
