Hi, Shadi,

Thanks a lot - that was very quick, indeed!  There is *a lot of interesting
information in the presentation *and having cut out the broken links etc., *it
is really good*.

In answer to your question on whether to continue to update these slides, I
feel that given the *overall work load *with the re-design, I don't think
we have time now to update it but I would certainly put it on the "Next to
do" in the context of this topic.  It would be good to hear what others
feel in this respect.

With this well-improved and interesting resource, I have a further set of
questions and thoughts, as given below:

   - How do we link to it?  Can we link to it *without *the (historical)
   overview page entitled "Instructions for the Web Accessibility Older Users
   - The title is "Web Accessibility for Older Users Presentation" which
   doesn't say too much about the content.  Can we change the title without
   "offending" any parties and link it from the main overview page?
   - Do we keep the "Instructions" overview page linked up or do we keep it
   in available but in an archive (historical) approach (similar to WAI-AGE

Considering the questions above, and in order* to save time*, I would like
to *propose to our Review Team *that:

(a) We keep the presentations page, keep the updated version of Shadi, keep
the historical version of WAI-AGE (as linked up in Shadi's updated
(b) In order to make the information "more reachable" (as in the current
link path, it is two levels deep and the title does not necessarily provide
an insight into the content), we create a page called "*Ageing and changing
abilities*" which would contain the updated statistical information (see
attached Word file).  This page would be linked up under the description of
declining age-related problems which is currently found under "Overlapping
needs..." (link:
or, alternatively, we combine the information under "Overlapping needs" and
the attached Word file.

*Review Team:  *For your consideration and comments on the above proposal
points (a) and (b).
