See my comment. I Looked at ver. 6 first but the text and placement in ver 5. is not enough to remove my concern.

   - Any other *burning* comments? -- otherwise let's wrap this...


I've looked at the drafts as if I was translating one and going to use it as hands-out to a group of people here in Denmark (not very familiar with W3C/WAI and our many "fantastic", great and very helpful resources). And actually I had worked my way half through the list of WAI resources before I realized that this is a list of available documents and resources on the WAI web site. This indicates to me that we might have a problem getting the message across: this is all the stuff that we've already made to help you understand and use the guidelines or standards that W3C/WAI have made in order to make the web accessible and easier to use by especially people with disabilities but also many other groups of people incl. elderly and users in certain situations. My suggestion is to put one sentence under the heading explaining this is a list of available resources/documents/materials (the current text in ver. 6 is not doing it). My problem understanding this may be caused by the word resources and its definition/meaning in my language and in English.
Cheers Helle

Subject: Additional revisions on updated WAI Flyer


Hi All,

I have taken the comments from our discussion at our 20 October 
teleconference and tried integrating them into an updated version of the 
WAI Flyer. Please see the links below, and further down are questions for 
our discussion.

The issue on which we had the most debate last time -- the introductory 
paragraph -- did not seem clearly preferable one way or the other, so I 
created two documents so that we can compare the approaches.

You will find these at:
         http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/flyerfront5.en.html
and
         http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/flyerfront6.en.html

GENERAL CHANGES are indicated in the change log under "20 October 2006" at:
         http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/changelogs/cl-flyer.html

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE TWO VERSIONS, in case they look the same to you:

* flyerfront5 <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/flyerfront5.en.html>
   - lists disability areas in introductory paragraph
   - mentions strategies, guidelines, and resources in the "participation" 
paragraph
   - breaks out the participation URI <www.w3.org/WAI/participation> on a 
separate line (note: this may or may not work on the actual graphic design, 
and we will need to re-test the design possibilities on this).
   - has the "supporting" line under activities

* flyerfront6:
   - mentions strategies, guidelines, and resources in the introductory 
paragraph
   - uses "develops accessibility solutions through a consensus process" in 
the "participation" paragraph
   - has the "supporting" line under resources, with slightly different 
phrasing

QUESTIONS FOR DISCUSSION:

   - Your preference on intro & participation paragraph phrasing -- and why?
   - Your preference on "supporting" placement -- and why?
   - Any other *burning* comments? -- otherwise let's wrap this...

Thanks!

- Judy
