[the original post from Henny didn't make it to the list, my response follows after citing her]

FYI, we are talking about the following page, the "list of demonstrated accessibility barriers":
- <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/2005/Demo/features>

Basically I agree that adding the word "accessibility" to the title makes it clearer but sadly also even longer than it already is. I was thinking about dropping the cumbersome "Before and After" from the title, then reworking it a little. The titles I came up with are:

* "Demonstration: Accessibility Barriers"
* "Demonstrated Accessibility Barriers"

Any reactions?
