Dear Coralie, all,

As already expressed in the list, I also welcome the new redesign of the 
specifications' stylesheets. I have just a couple of suggestions.

The first one would be to put the whole header sections into some kind 
of accordion tab that you can expand whenever you need that information 
(and please, do not forget the aria attributes). This will make the 
whole thing friendlier to mobile devices as well.

The second suggestion would be (for small screen sizes) to collapse 
under an icon the whole table of contents at the top, like the menus in 
most of the responsive design CSS frameworks. That will save also a lot 
of useless scrolling in such devices.

I also think that the "list of substantive improvements" should be 
somehow extracted in a help document so that "beginners" in editorial 
tasks can have at hand a list of best practices and their corresponding
