"Clearest" and "simplest" (not "most clear" and "most simple") are 
the correct superlative forms of "clear" and "simple."

I liked Al's suggestions and think that Anne makes a very good point 
when she distinguishes purpose from content.

We haven't yet found the best possible wording, but we're getting dang close!
