Hi all -

It might be an idea to mention that RSS is one of the key
technologies for accessing blogs?  Some of the target audience
may have heard at least something about blogging, so this would
be another hook to help understand what RSS is about...

On a separate, but related, point, I'm wondering about the
architecture of the RSS linkage from the EOWG home page. At the
moment, even if I know perfectly well what RSS is, it seems I
have to go via the "About RSS" page before getting the actual
link I can subscribe to.  That is not really consistent with the
usual practice I've encountered elsewhere, to the extent that I
missed the link completely the first couple of times I looked (I
assummed that an RSS feed for the "Highlights" would be somewhere
close to the "Highlights" heading, or at least in the same
column...). I'm inclined to suggest that the RSS feed link might
be right in the "Highlights" header element or immediately after?
This would be as well as, and separate from, providing the "About
RSS" link in the side navigation panel...

Best - Barry.
