Hi Helle,

The phrases in question have only been commented out for now so they are available in the source code view. They all appear on the "News Page" (and the "Home Page" to some extent too).

> Have these "wording problems" been discussed in any EO WG call? I've tried to follow the links back to both Liam and Shadi's messages, I've also looked at the "Before" web site. I find it very difficult to get an overview of the impact of the changes without being able to compare the site with the old "offending" wording and the new "neutral" wording. Where can I find the old Before site?
