Comments regarding links example:
I like this document very much and I think that it will be very helpful. 
Suggest that the same graphic be used in the "Overview" and "HTML" 
examples.
Suggest rewording of text: "Most of the links do not go to the top of 
the documents; rather, they go to the relevant information within the 
middle of the documents, as shown in the examples below." (current 
wording) to "Most of the links do not go to the top of the documents; 
rather, they go to the relevant SECTIONS OF THE documents, as shown in 
the examples below."

Comments regarding Introduction to Web accessibility document:
I feel that the opening sentences of this document should be stronger. 
"Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the Web. 
It means that people can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact 
with the Web effectively." (current wording). Here are two alternatives 
but I'm not happy with either of them.
Alternative 1: "Web accessibility means that people with disabilities 
can use and access the Web. Web accessibility facilitates (indicates, 
denotes) that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, 
navigate, and interact with the Web effectively."
Alternative 2: "Web accessibility means that people with disabilities 
can use the Web by perceiving, understanding, navigating, and 
interacting with  it effectively and efficiently."

Several sections in this document are brief and I wonder whether they 
could be combined. For example, could the  barriers section be combined 
with "Why Web Accessibility is Important"?
