Hi Jon,

This is exactly the kind of review we want and need - thank you! If
possible, can you use the GitHub link
<https://github.com/w3c/wai-website/wiki/W3C-WAI-Website-Redesign-Information>
at the bottom of the beta pages so we can track and document how issues are
addressed?

Thanks again!
Best,
Sharron
