Hi Jennifer,

Thank you for your comments, please see some responses below.

On a side note for future reference: since these comments do not need 
discussion by EOWG, they are better sent to <wai-eo-editors@w3.org>.

Interesting issue. Actually the headings contain the full titles but the 
anchor is set after the number, to avoid repeating them when one jumps 
from the table of contents. Apparently some screen readers may stop 
reading the heading at the start of the anchor.

Anyway, I will fix this coding. Thanks for pointing it out.

These links are within square brackets because they are only editors 
notes. They will all be removed from the final version but for now it 
helps compare back with be initial version (from 2005) of "How People 
with Disabilities Use the Web".

Having said that, the square brackets are outside the link text and 
there are no other apparent indicators. I will fix that too.
