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"?
