Hello John,

I still have work to do, but thought I'd send something sooner than 
later.  I've made all of your suggested edits and am checking with you on a 
few of them.  Many of your suggestions were changes that Michael needs to 
make to HTML Techniques (primarily title text, which effects the link text 
in gateway) - I have not made those yet.  I have updated the view at: 
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2004/07/test-gateway1.html> (gateway2 and 
gateway3 have *not* been updated)

You suggested, "...cognitive impairments or learning disabilities that 
affect the ability to understand written text." I used "Such synthetic 
speech may also be helpful to people who have difficulty reading written 
text. "

You suggested changing, "If the non-text content..." to "Provide text 
alternatives..."  I left that as is because the other tasks are written in 
similar language.  Although it is a conditional, I think we need some hint 
about *when* someone should apply a task.  I know it is in the heading of 
the technique, but all of the tasks begin to sound the same when the "if" 
is removed.  It's not perfect, but will it do for now?  I'm open to other 
suggestions...although actually hoping you don't have any so that I won't 
have to edit again [big grin].

You suggested that "Excerpts from NBA..." change to "Information on 
describing..."  I decided that since the actual title of the resource is 
"Excerpts..." to leave that as the link text, but then added your 
annotation after the link.  Is that cool?

I have added links to HTML Techniques, but have not checked that they are 
all the most appropriate nor that I have left any out - but will.  Any 
other eyes or ears or fingers looking at these are appreciated.

I have not added links to CSS Techniques, but will.

Thank you for your wonderful feedback.  If you can get to this before 
tomorrow, great!
