For EOWG discussion today:

 From Sylvie:

> On the tables tutorials, for example, on the "Tables concepts"
> http://www.w3.org/WAI/tutorials/tables/#
> There is on the heading Why is this important?
> a link just besides saying: "link to this section of the page".
> What is it for?

 From Eric:

This is for linking directly to the heading “Why is this important”.
(Permalinking) It makes parts of the document linkable so we don’t
have to send people to the concepts page and searching for the header,
instead it should be in the viewport/screen reader focus immediately.

 From Shawn:

As I expressed previously, I think these images are confusing for people who don't know them and add visual complexity. I agree that permalinks are useful for some people, so it would be good to indicate them in a way that has less potential for confusion.

I think it's worth discussion.
