Hi James,

I’ve just seen this from you in the weekly survey this week and I want 
to give you (and Alicia) some more background information from my point 
of view.

* Some people seem to like multiple fly-outs, I do not :-)

* The current version did not get any deep thought but just a bare 
minimum functionality for people to get a feeling of the IA.

* I have added a version of the navigation that is much more similar to 
the provided design: 
https://w3c.github.io/wai-website-components/components/preview/example-home-alt

   * The changes are mainly done because we don’t have as many blocks 
as expected, so it looked somehow weird.

* Any ideas on how to make the main points more balanced? They nicely 
fit into the used 8 column grid[^1] but I wonder if centering the 
individual points would be a good idea. Another idea I had was to 
indicate the underline that comes with the hover when the item is not 
hovered[^2].

Best, Eric
