Hello all,

Here are some comments to the intro page:
Introduction to Notes on Accessibility Features of W3C 
Technologies:    Version: Early Rough Draft 2004.07.14

1. In the navigation bar, the parts "contents" and "documents" could be 
headings (like h2). In this version, it is not clear when the note ends and 
if the "documents" section is a section as itself or if it still belongs to 
the note.

2. The navigation links in contents which are anchors do not have the same 
text as the heading they lead to, which seems to me to be confusing.
Example: the anchor link "About W3C Technologies" leads to "Accessibility 
of W3C Technologies=
Developers leads to "Who develops these Notes".

Suggestion: change text of link "About W3C Technologies" in "Accessibility 
of W3C Technologies".
Change link text: "developers" in "Who develops these Notes".

3. Some anchor links do not work properly such as: "references", "scalable 
vector graphics".

4. In section : "Accessibility of W3C Technologies" at the end of first 
paragraph the link [1] does not work. What is it for?

5. Section  "Accessibility Features of scalable vector graphics". First 
a) The current wording: "SVG is an Extensible Markup Language (XML) 
application for producing Web graphics which offers a number of features to 
make graphics on the Web more accessible than is currently possible, to a 
wider group of users.

b) Concerns  with current wording: sentence is too long and not clear to me.
c) Suggestion: I don't  have suggestions.

6. Next sentence:
a) current wording: "Users who benefit include users with low vision, color 
blind or blind users, and users of assistive technologies."

b) Concerns : not homogeneous as we talk from users with low vision, then 
color blind or blind users. Those also use assistive technologies.

c) suggestions for revision:
Users who benefit include low vision users (or visually impaired users), 
color blind or blind users, and other users of assistive technologies.
or: Users who benefit include users with low vision, with color blindness 
or blindness, and other users of assistive technologies."

d) Reasons for the revision: it assumes that visually impaired users, color 
blind and blind users do not use assistive technologies.
