DD:: I concur.
I'd add that first thing in this intro.

DD:: Also need to fix the mention of "the DOM working group." in the Status

DD:: on 1. StyleSheets
As I said before, it was not my intent to change using SS as
The way it looks now is nad: a Required that says "make sure it works
without SS" and a Rec that says use it. Bottom line sounds too much
like a "do not use them".
Please revert to Required and change the order to use first and unsure

DD:: 2.1 Image ALT
I think 2.1.4 that would say something like : for decoration image,
uses ALT="", even if we don't all agree, is better than saying nothing

I proposed <div class=navbar>.
Comment 2: Should we wait to recommend this until the UI group has
created a guideline for the browser side of things?
DD:: yeah, you're probably right, we need to wait for the UI group to
tell us what they need in terms of Markup to achieve a good UI.
