Description Maciej Stachowiak 2010-11-02 09:57:32 UTC
The Working Draft warning is highly visible, but it can get in the way for readers who read it it but nontheless want to continue reading a Working Draft (for example, the reader may be trying to determine the differences between sequential WDs or between the WD or the current ED). Please add a way to hide it.
Comment 1 Paul Cotton 2010-11-09 11:35:14 UTC
There is a further rationale for making the warning suppressible:

The current fixed position warning hides the highlighted result of a string search when the user agent positions the search context on the last line of the window.   This often happens for the second and subsequent search hits.

Comment 2 Maciej Stachowiak 2010-11-09 20:37:28 UTC
Another suggestion besides a close box was to make the warning auto-hide after a timeout.
Comment 3 Maciej Stachowiak 2010-11-09 20:41:29 UTC
Moving to pre-LC component per agreement of the Chairs.
Comment 4 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2010-11-10 17:36:50 UTC
This'll be easy to fix, it's blocked on my finishing the dirname="" edits.
