For some reason, I got an undelivered mail message when I sent this the
first time, so I will try again.

Now I need some help interpreting the results. I ran the WAVE on the
following web page:

http://cnx.org/content/m45284/latest/

The first line on the output says: "Uh oh! WAVE has detected 8
accessibility errors"

However, I am unable to determine where the errors are. The output page is
filled with icons and associated pop-up boxes. The closest icon that I can
find that looks like an error has a picture of a hand and a question mark.
However, there are far more than eight of them. Also, the text in the
pop-up boxes looks more like a warning than an error.

Any help in interpreting the WAVE output for
http://cnx.org/content/m45284/latest/ would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Dick Baldwin
