[09:47] <shadi> please have a quick look at
[09:47] <shadi> http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/tools/
[09:48] <shadi> (i'm doing the simple search checkboxes right now but apart from that, your changes should be incorporated)

COOL!

Looking forward to seeing checkbox options. any chance of seeing draft before goes to EOWG?

A couple other things - *sorry* didn't catch the first time around! :(

* Still need to fix up the [Complete list... Advanced Search] bar at the top so that it looks like a toggle bar.
- The most important thing is that it is more visually clear which page you are on, e.g., looks 3-D pushed in with different background colour. Also make the current page text black (not the orange, which looks clickable) (or, if use darker colour for current page background, then white for text).
- Would be good to look & act like a toggle bar, e.g., at least 3-D and maybe even looks pushed during click.
- I think better to be form colours, and not WAI site colours - i.e., gray borders rather than orange - to tie in with the search options, rather than than the site wrapper.

What about the CSS for a toggle bar that I sent you back when we first talked out it? I think it was pretty close to being just cut & paste. (I think I got it from samples of accessible ways to do things, too.) (Wish we had someone in EOWG who liked playing with CSS & design to do this. )

MINOR
* in list page: add a space between the end of the drop-down list box and the [Sort] button (so they are clearly distinct and brain is less likely to munge them together :)
* in advanced page: search button in the middle of the fieldsets doesn't work. maybe doesn't work to have a second one afterall?
* in simple search page, it looks nice with the "List tools that" moved over left so it's under "Simple" and not tight up against the left edge.. however, now need to indent the other three things underneath it so they are at a nother level visually. :/
* in simple search page, now that I see it, I think that Judy &/or others might prefer the colon after "List tools that", which is OK with me - either way
