Ian, everyone, congratulations on the redesign!

 

Obviously, an enormous amount of work has been done and even more work is
ahead. Please find some comments below:

 

Did you find the new technical report style an improvement?:

Yes

 

Did you find the site, overall, easier to navigate?:

Definitely, providing that the majority of the pages are migrated into the
new design.

 

What do you think we can do to improve it? Feel free to mention easy
improvements and also larger-scale projects (even if we can't get to them
today).

                First of all, as a (former) translator of the W3C documents,
I miss connection to the specification translations. I suggest that in
specifications where you list such things as "Is this document a Web
standard?" and "Is this the latest draft of this specification?" another
line is added, i.e. "Is there a translation of this document?" with "No, not
yet" and "Yes, please browse through the <a href="somepage.html">list of
available translations</a>"

                Secondly, the shadow effect on the left (e.g., main page)
looks really cheap if you ask me. There are no shadows on the other parts of
site, it might be worth removing this rudiment.

 

Good luck with the rest of the redesign!

 

Regards,

Alexander
