Hi, good work.
I'm some observation:

Accessibility:
* The top bar and the footer is not sufficiently contrasted
* I suggest that all of links are underlined
* The line-height in the top-right box is too lite
* I suggest to insert some accesskey for the main link
* It's my personal opinion that the code outline is erroneous, "Web
Accessibility Initiative (WAI)" it's the first title (
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2FWAI%2Fut3%2F&cha
rset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=%28detect+automatically%29&outline=1
&verbose=1#outline )

Comunication, usability and design:
* The title of menu it tricks the customer whom she believes is a link
* I don't understand the top image of the bridge. What would have to
communicate?
* The new WAI Logo don't communicate some message, indeed, the colors
indicate dynamics and business communication
* The breadcrumbs is not usefully, I suggest to insert after "You are here:"
* The underline of "Highlights" against the box is not much elegant

Code:
* There are many acronym and abbreviation not marked
* In firefox the box model is erroneous, the horizontal scrollbar appears
* The transitional DTD is not a "pure" language raccomandation, I suggest to
use XHTML 1.0 Strict
