Hi Yeliz

I apologise for not having got my comments to you earlier. I'd prepared 
them but somehow managed not to send them.

Jo

In general I like the layout.

I think that it might be worth making the descriptive text that follows 
the title more consistent. Sometimes it says "the user" sometimes "user" 
sometimes "user" is implied and sometimes it is a staccato list of 
problems e.g. "Information loss. Content inoperable"

Would it be better if "Large page or large images" read "Large pages and 
large images"?

In the same section Users / get or User / gets ?

In the section "Information conveyed only using CSS" is it worth 
mentioning that CSS can contain content as well as formatting - e.g. 
background image and "before" and "after" text?

On "Missing or inappropriate page title" - - the title is often not 
displayed at all in mobile browsers. So the significance is probably 
that bookmark lists don't make much sense.

Under Focus (tab) order - I think the mobile section sort of implies 
that navigation is via tab key, which it isn't, but in any case it may 
be worth mentioning that it's hard to navigate with the common 4-way rocker.

At Long words etc. - I think it may be worth mentioning that the users 
context often means that they want rapid access to unambiguous 
information - i.e. it's not just that they are distracted and have 
partial attention on the content.

Invalid or unsupported markup - some older devices don't display invalid 
markup at all. I don't think that content adaptation is the main point 
here, and should probably be removed.
