go ?, young man

i just remembered another thing about toevolt on the weekend. coming from london, with not much experience driving in toronto, we were following the map provided by the event that we printed from the web site (yes, in magenta).

however, for a conference on accessibility and usability, the map had no indications of which direction was north. while it turns out that the way the text reads points to north, when you turn the map around to get a sense of where you really are, it was difficult to recall which way (in one of the many panics we were in) was north to orient ourselves.

re: caption tags - mm? i'll look into it today and see what i can do about that string of snaps below. thanks to dan for the link!

in addition to caption tags, i just looked at wtfudge in links (text-only browser) and you have the same alt text for all the header images in the left-hand navigation bar - they all say "Recent Posts". was a little confusing at first.

thought you might want to know - other than that it looks pretty good in links - though joe clark would frown at the navigation comeing before the content, so maybe you could float things differently so they can be placed in the other order and still look the same - i did that to mine after reading dan's book.

i'll shut up now :)
