Hi Group!

As I’m not 100% sure at the moment that I can attend the
teleconference this evening, just some remarks about

> 2. Meta navigation

>  - feedback from discussion with WAI-AGE TF

There is some feedback about the annotations and their appearance,
which should probably be discussed, too.

(Quotes now from that
document:http://www.w3.org/2009/06/03-waiage-minutes.html#item01 )

I think that is a good question and we should consider it, like having
the text to read “Show 2 Annotations” or something like that.

I tend to second that, probably we should move the template link out
of the navigation. On the other hand it deserves to be presented in
the same way as the other examples. Probably prefixing each tab with
“Demo:” could work but would also use considerably more space.

I’m afraid we cannot. It is quite a balancing act to have the demo
navigation a) visually cohesive and b) visually distinct. I think
something like a label “Choose a demo” could help to make it clearer.

Never heard of that one – and opposing to it. We don’t have any
horizontal screen space left for a demo navigation.

Waived that error already (pun intended).

Overall it seems like pretty positive feedback and we should not
change too much over the current version.
