Thanks for the comments Shawn,

I've been through the 8/Aug and 5/Sept EO minutes as well and think I've 
accommodated everything as appropriate.

The document is updated on http://www.w3.org/WAI/WAI-AGE/comparative.html

Note I'm still trying to get hold of Liam for some CSS assistance. See 
below also.

DONE - and the collected ideas listed for this week, then scrapped.

CP was supposed to be GL - swapped and retained as GL is still used. 

If we can dispose of "GL", then the simple sentence would also go 
off-screen just as soon as the "n.a." goes off-screen

See separate email. Trying off-screen comment in the interim.

Tried to tidy up - any you think should still be scrapped?
