Thanks so much for the quick feedback, Kevin!

Differences between the real Supplemental preview and the hacked Understanding example are just because the latter is hacked (poorly by me late at night :-). When done properly, they should use the same template CSS etc.

Re: Position of strap line/tagline -- Indeed we did have it under the document type ("Supplemental Guidance to WCAG 2", "WCAG 2.2 Understanding Documents", etc.) in a previous iteration. In tiny informal UT, it was missed there. Our requirements say it is essential that users get that info. (reinforced even this week from a conference presentation)

And, it's similar position to main WAI website header tagline.

Strictly visually, I like the tagline under the Document Type -- however, I think the other considerations say it should be separate, as in the latest design. I don't feel super strongly.

*And* I think if after more robust testing we decide otherwise, we could make that change in a later phase and it wouldn't annoy users much.

Thanks,
~Shawn
