Dear Charles,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with the Web site.

We are aware that the current Web site can be very difficult to use, and we are currently redesigning the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) sub-site. Information about the WAI Web Site Redesign Project is available at:

We hope to roll out the redesigned site within the next couple of months, and are confident that it will be _much_ easier to use.

Best regards,

~ Shawn

This seems like poor navigation design and inconsistent with the w3c's usability standards, especially since the alt text on the WAI logo just indicates that it is indeed the WAI logo, and does NOT indicate that it is being used a navigational button to return one to the WAI homepage.
