Hi group,

Here are some late impressions on navigating the page

The problem I have found is that I cannot immediatly visually identify
hyperlinks in the page: there is not a unique criteria for displaying
hyperlinks, some of them are underlined, some not, some of them are simply
bold text, and some bold text is not a hyperlink.

In one word, confusing, as I had to go around the page with my mouse looking
for all hyperlinks.

Some example:

- In the left navigation menu "W3C Home" is a link, "WAI Home" is not a
link, but they're both bold text
- All hyperlinks in the navigation bar are not underlined; I think that they
should be, so that they can immediatly identified as links to other pages
- In the central comunm hyperlinks are dotted-underlined, but in the right
column they're only bold: for example, the only way to understand if "WAI
develops..." or "guidelines" are a link or not is to pass on them with the

I think that all hyperlinks should be easily recognizable at first glance,
so they should be all undelined (dotted?).

My best regards,
