         The draft is looking good! It's almost enjoyable reading! <grin> ...

         Have a lot of new examples been added, or did I not notice them 
before? The ones that are new to me are well written, and could be easily 
illustrated with a link to an appropriate page/site.

         As an example of illustrating a site, you may want to look at my 
recently finished(?) for the kids to learn about the various Famous 
Americans in their curriculum. 
http://www.geocities.com/apembert45/FamAmer/  The index page for the site 
contains pictures for each of the persons to be studied at each grade 
level. Clicking on the picture leads to a specific page for that person, 
which includes one or more pictures, some basic facts about the person, and 
links to more information, more pictures, and whatever else I could find on 
that person that seemed useful either to the children themselves, or to the 
teachers. For each person I have a printable page of small pictures that 
can be printed, cut out, and given to the children to use with written 
work, games, etc. For some (but not all), I have a large picture that the 
teacher can print out and display in the room, or install as wallpaper 
during the unit.

         If you want to use this site as an example of illustrating 
content, let me know what I have to do to make it "accessible" if it isn't 
now (need to check a few pages for all tags, but everything else should be 
OK.) so it can be used. The site isn't eligible for a Bobby certification 
because it's on Yahoo!
