Thank you for the review and comments, Wayne.

I am very glad to get confirmation that the pages work well for you in your configuration!

I think pulling the links out of the News blurbs would actually make them longer overall, and make it a bit harder to get context - or wordier.

I created two issues about the change text size and colors:
* https://github.com/w3c/wai-customize-design/issues/2
* https://github.com/w3c/wai-website/issues/84

Best,
~Shawn

Otherwise the users are in a trap. Also the link resize and color should get bigger on focus or hover. There is the very real problem of not being able to see the link on entry to the page. The first time I encountered this (way back when) I was very frustrated because it didn't help me. Do you see? There are two problems: 1) finding the make text large in the first place and 2) Being able to read the page once you get there.

It has significant revisions for better usability, readability, skimmability, findability, discoverability, and content throughout. The visual design, information architecture, and navigation is all new. Much of the content is revised. It's also easier for the community to be involved in improving resources. Many content updates are already done in the beta, and others are planned for the coming months.
