EOWG,

New rough concept drafts of the Accessibility page for beta.w3.org are now available. *These are rough, unapproved ideas for discussion*. Please focus on overall issues (not detailed "wordsmithing") and realize these are individuals' ideas that are no where near agreement or completion.

Please use the Analysis and Changelog page as your main page for this work. It is: http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/changelogs/cl-2009-w3c-site-redesign

* See that the goals and audiences are different from most of the WAI pages.

* The first link is to the Accessibility page - latest version.

* Right under there are links to examples HTML & CSS, Internationalization. Skimming through those you can see the type of information we might want to cover. Also note that much of the wrapper is a template defined by the W3C website redesign.

* Previous drafts, links to minutes, email threads, and such are under "References and version notes". There are three very different drafts since last Friday:
- "17 Aug 2009 draft - a universality experimental version" is playing with the broader view of universality. Note that we are not planning to make this shift, yet the draft was an interesting exercise based on the 14 EOWG teleconference discussion.
- "18 Aug 2009 draft L - the minimalist version" is another perspective resulting from that discussion. (note that, while eloquent, this one doesn't use the current beta.w3.org template design, as noted in previous email)
- "14-18 Aug EOWG mailing list archives" has several e-mails that are relevant, with subject "Re: stab at betaw3"

Please look over these drafts, and the latest at http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/4betaW3org/accessibility-new-w3c

Feel free to send comments to the list and/or prepare for discussion at the upcoming EOWG teleconference.

Regards,
~Shawn
