WAI-ARIA Overview - by early March

Who else: Anyone please comment on the WAI-ARIA Overview page by 4 March.

  • [done] Anna Belle 20-Feb-2014
  • [done] Sylvie, 25-Feb-2014
  • [done] Paul 27-Feb-2014. Overall, this is very well-written.
    • To my eye, the use of bold text creates a "noisy page" and is not necessary. That said, the bold text, if combined, would actually make a great TL;DR summary of this page.
    • In "The WAI-ARIA Documents" section, what exactly does "...completed and published in 2011" mean? Following the link "How WAI Develops Accessibility Guidelines through the W3C Process" does not reveal which milestone "completed and published" actually is.
