Hi Shawn, hi all.

> 1. tagline justify: right > left

I find it ok.


> 2. tagline added (WAI): "Web Accessibility Initiative:  
> Strategies..." > "Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI): Strategies..."

Maybe it's redundant; we have already:
<h1>Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)</h1>


> 3. in navigation: W3C Home > W3C Home Page
> 4. in navigation: Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI Home) > WAI  
> Home Page

Maybe it's redundant.


regards
ciao
