>Guidelines look good.
>One guideline I'd add --didn't see it covered:
>
>When user agents display content in multiple viewports --and
>the user's action in one view port causes the display in
>other view ports to be updated,
>the user agent should make such display update notifications
>available through standard APIs like the DOM/HTML event
>APIs.
>
>This is important because at least on today's WWW the user
>is likely to miss such changes.
>
>Minor addition  on the section  that talks about "search" as
>a useful navigation technique --a useful addition would be
>to allow the user to search only certain types of constructs
>in the document e.g. headings.
