WCAG WG,

Congratulations on publishing the latest WCAG 2.0 Working Draft documents!

You may have seen the recent message to the WAI IG list about the WAI Web Site Redesign[1]. In the next couple of days, we hope to resolve the remaining major issues (font sizing, CSS cleanup, and others listed at http://www.w3.org/WAI/ut3/redesign/project.html#status), and rollout the new site design soon.

If you are interested in reviewing the prototype to ensure that there are no substantial problems that we may have missed, please send any issues to me by Wednesday night, 6 July 2005.

Note that many of the links will not work in the prototype URI. There are only two basic layouts: 
1. the home page at http://www.w3.org/WAI/ut3/
2. content pages, for example: http://www.w3.org/WAI/ut3/intro/accessibility.php
(The navigation pages are the same as the contents pages, minus the "page contents" section.)

For any issues you note, please indicate if you think they are significant enough to delay rolling out the new site redesign, or if they can be taken into consideration for later updates.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
~ Shawn Henry & Judy Brewer

Dear WAI IG Participants,

The WAI Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) is redesigning the WAI Web site following a user-centered design process (UCD). Please see the project page for project goals, status, and documentation:
 http://www.w3.org/WAI/ut3/redesign/project.html

We are currently working on the final prototype of the redesigned WAI Web site. While much of the design is complete, we are still addressing several open issues. You can watch the progress from the prototype home page at:
 http://www.w3.org/WAI/ut3/

While we are in the development process, please do not send comments about things like broken links and validation errors. However, if you have serious concerns that are not listed as open issues under:
 http://www.w3.org/WAI/ut3/redesign/project.html#status
you can send comments to:
* team-site-design@w3.org - for WAI staff
* wai-site-comments@w3.org - for the redesign team's issue list (email can be seen by the public)
* w3c-wai-ig@w3.org - for public discussion

As we will be focusing our efforts on completing the prototype and rollout to the new design, we will not be able to reply to most comments. Even though we may not respond to your comments, please be assured that we will take all comments into consideration for the initial release or subsequent updates.

We plan to complete the prototype and rollout the redesigned WAI Web site in July 2005.

Best regards,
~ Shawn Henry, for the WAI Site Redesign Task Force (WSTF) of EOWG
