You're welcome, Shadi!
 
I just realized I hit "Send" before I gave examples of first words that need to be capped in sentences that follow a run-in heading. Every one of those is in the Overview.
 
Near the top of the page, "Note: This Demo..." instead of "Note: this Demo..."
 
Near the bottom of the page, the first roman letter following each bolded head in the bulleted list under "Using the Demo." Come to think of it, "Using This Demo" would be a stronger heading there.
 
That's it for those errors in the main content. Others:
On the Survey:
Under "Favorite Park," it should be "Jurassic," not "Jurrasic"
"Favorite" seems to be American at the top of the page (Favorite Park) and British at the bottom ("favourite and least favourite organ"). Shouldn't we be consistent? Our subject-verb agreement follows the British convention, so our favourite should, too.
On Tickets, do we mean to be misspelling Thelonious Monk's last name?
Finally for now, on the News page, Accessible version, explanatory notes:
Note 03, "Times New Roman," not "Times new Roman"
Notes 05 and 10: Capitalize "the" after "Note:"
Once again, tiny stuff. Great work!
 
Cliff
