There's a usability issue related to the module headings on the
"Current Work" page [1] (I'm just keeping on running into this issue
myself and see others run into it too, which finally makes me report

So for instance, if you're jumping to the Selectors box [2], the
underlined "Selectors" heading suggests that it leads to respective
(most recent) specification, but that's not the case, it just links to
itself. Linking a resource to itself is known to be a usability
problem that's significant (not just for homepages and since 2003 [3])
yet usually easy to fix, so I'd ask to either remove respective links
or, likely better, to link the headings to respective most recent

Thank you,
