Hi Paul,


Good question, and thanks for beating me to the punch. I will ensure this is taken to the APA (formally PFWG) to ensure that happens.

+1 on the kudos for quality of the redesign and the accompanying documentation.


My only question/suggestion: has this undergone an Accessibility review? As much as I like the design some elements strike me as potentially problematic for someone with color blindness or vision impairment.

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 markups/styles.
