I was asking how you intend to proceed with this, and more subtly, how
you arrived at the design you sent us a preview to. Relevant details
would be, for instance, where we could review the legibility problems
you have identified so far, which public mailing list you are using to
discuss them, whether there is some kind of schedule for when you plan
to ask for feedback, and so on.

As it is, people who actually want to improve the readability of W3C's
technical reports would seem to have a hard time to contribute to your
effort, I for instance missed where you asked the community to report
readability problems people currently encounter. I would hope others
reported the issues I myself encounter, but I can't check because I do
not know where this information is being maintained and disucssed. So,
the problem is more that I do not know how to use the feed you sent.
