I don't know if I can usefully dictate a design from bug comments, but let me
just compare with two other pages:

http://www.w3.org/XML/Query/
http://www.whatwg.org/

Both are pretty clearly much more inviting than the HTMLWG page. (Though
neither are my ideal.)

So,

1) The current page should not be the front page. It's really an internal wg
page. I suggest replacing it with either a navigation like interface (a la the
WHATWG page), or a richer page still geared at a general audience (a la the
XQuery page).

2) I think have a short list of "key external resources people might find
helpful" would be a good page to have.

3) I think having a "reviewers and commenters guide" on the model of Shelley's
would also be very useful in general and especially when going to last call. (I
founding having a guide on *how* to comment and another on *what to comment on*
particularly helpful.)

Is this more helpful?
