I like the idea of the subtitle. The title "Web Accessibility and
Mobile Phones" is short and easy to grasp, while the subtitle
qualifies it. Perhaps "Web Content for People with Disabilities and
Mobile Phones" might work, too.

The terms "global", "all time high" and "surge" In the first sentence
are a bit overwhelming.

For the navigation, I think that "Mobile Overlap" is too narrow.
although the MWBP document is about the overlap, this one can be wider
in scope. Perhaps "Mobile Web" covers the concept more completely.
Accessibility is evident from the context.

The "W3C Guidelines Overlap" doesn't seem to quite fit in the section
"Similar Barriers and Solutions", as it also applies to "Doing Both"
and "Resources". The latter actually describes the overlap, so perhaps
it should be expanded to describe it more explicitly, rather than
being a separate resources section. Perhaps there should be "Similar"
and "Both.." sections, and then explain how this plays out in W3C
Recommendations, and finally what we're doing to bridge the gap.

Perhaps the document should explain that the two fields tend to have
their own specialists who are not too aware of what the others do, or
what the (perceived) other group of users need, and that many people
with disabilities are in both groups. And that the Recommendations are
developed by and for different groups within W3C, and the effect this
tends to have.

best regards to EO people for the New Year 2008,

Are you OK with the title of "Making a Web Site Both Accessible for People with Disabilities and for Mobile Devices", or would you strongly prefer a short title with subtitle, e.g., "Web Accessibility and Mobile Phones: Making your Web site both accessible for people with disabilities and for mobile devices"?
