Thanks for the comments, Alan. I made a few changes, and left the others for EOWG discussion.

Are you OK with the title of "Making a Web Site Both Accessible for People with Disabilities and for Mobile Devices", or would you strongly prefer a short title with subtitle, e.g., "Web Accessibility and Mobile Phones: Making your Web site both accessible for people with disabilities and for mobile devices"?

>> - "Managing Accessibility">"Implementation Plan for Web Accessibility" because it's about considering both sets of guidelines in your web development process?
