	I'm on my third attempt to create an illustration of an ideal web page. 

	The componants I already have are: Title, the topical illustration,
summary, page controls, a site map, sound files, Key Idea, general
illustrations, and the body of text.  At the bottom is Credits (include
authorship, date, and source of any componants, and any icons for awards,
accessibiity, etc.) followed by the navigational arrows. I was thinking as
I picked up some plants for my new herb garden, that with a site map, there
needs to be space for a text-only version of the links, perhaps just above
the credits.

	Are there any other componants of an accessible page (that are included in
the basic visual presentation) that I have omitted?

	Next, to tackle illustrating an auditory page ... how will the layout need
to change? What about layout for a tactually-used page? What needs to be
added, omitted, or order changed? 

	Illustrations so far that seem to be workable are 1) for 3.1 (use
consistency in presentation): an illustration showing a set of consistently
layed out pages, 2) for 3.2 (Emphasize the logical structure through
presentation): an illustration showing the componants of an ideal "title"
page, 3) for 3.3 (Divide large blocks of information into smaller groups
where natural or appropriate): an illustration showing three types of pages
with content broken into usable groups, currently a table of contents, a
page of cirectios, and a chapter page showing headings and marked up text.

	After 3.3, the illustrations become the sections of these ideal pages that
are included in the guideline. 

	So I need to complete the construction of the ideeal pages for at least: a
title page, a subtitle page, a page in a chapter a table of contents page,
and a glossary page, plus a page of directions. What other types of pages
need to be included?
