Dear WSTF folks,

Just some thoughts about the new design of the WAI pages. Many people do need a clear but not so busy site to concentrate on what they are looking for. The box under the navigation is by its format already clear as having some extra options. So there is no need  for a list format or brackets around the options. 

The link 'W3C Home' is not clear, without hovering the mouse over the word 'W3C Home' there is no format clue to know that this is a link to the W3C homepage. It is even a bit strange as solitude word on top of the navigation.

To me it is not clear to be on the Web Accessibility Initiative web site. This is because of the fact that the word Web Accessibility Initiative is rather small and is a part of a long sentence. See my sample what I thought would be more clear. (wai.png)

What I already said in last call, the two logos appear to me as if the web site is representing two different organizations. That's why I was in favour of a WAI logo that is more in the look and feel of the W3C logo. Or it should be much smaller that the W3C logo. (See image wai2.png).
