> For the TECHNIQUES:
> 	Thought  #1.) I have not had the time to talk to Wendy about this
> yet (Sorry Wendy)......for the opening splash I suggest having a
> QuickLinks list down the right side, as on the new main W3C (www.w3.org),
> minus the HRs:
> 		QUICKLINKS
> 		Structure/Presentation
> 		Text Equivalents
> 		Alternate Pages
> 		Keyboard Access
> 		Navigation
> 		Comprehension
> 		Content Negotiation
> 		Auto. Page Refresh
> `		Screen Flicker
> 		Bundled Documents
> 		Validation
> 		Browser Support
> 		Accessible Technologies
> 		Audio Info
> 		Visual/Motion Info
> 	I realize that these links seem to mimic the Table of Contents, but
> this places people quickly where they might wish to be, without scrolling.
> This may help to avoid intimidating more elementary users, and give quick
> access to veterans.

> 	Thought  #2.) There appears to be a typo on 5.8 Automatic page
> refresh, 4th word on line three, of the #1. bullet.  I think you mean it
> to say "be", not "by".
> 
> 	Thought  #3.) Under 5.3 Alternative pages, in the second area of
> numbered bullets. #1.
> "Provide links at the top......."  Small point here, but, wouldn't it be
> more convenient for a blind user to also have a link back to the graphic
> page at the BOTTOM of the text page as well, first link after the end of
> the content?
> 
> 	Thought  #4.) On 5.9 Screen flicker, I have heard several
> web-designers question the flashing/flickering animations of FLASH and
> some of the javascript mouse-overs that appear to flicker.  Should we
> address this?
> 
> 	Thought  #5.) This is an area I am least versed on, but, 5.15 Audio
> Information..........isn't it RealMedia (the company that makes
> RealPlayer) doing the most with the streaming media format?  I cannot
> recall the name of the format......................

> 	Anyway, that is my 2 cents.................................Katie
