Hey EOWG folks,

There's lots of updated material to review before the teleconference this week. It's listed under "Actions for all EOWG" at the top of the EOWG home page: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/#actionsall>

Please review this material and add your comments to the wiki before the teleconference -- or, send e-mail.

If you have issues for discussion and don't want to clutter the main text, you can add comments to the sections at the end: "EOWG Notes on alt text" and "EOWG Notes on Headings". (As always, use whatever method of sharing comments that you are comfortable with -- you can also send comments in e-mail.)

Update: Questions on overall approach are now in the Analysis wiki page and linked from the "Actions for all EOWG" list: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/#actionsall>

Talk to you Friday!
