Each bolded item in list states a goal and the sub-list states some ways we can accomplish the goal. At this point, many ideas have been implemented; see [web:redesign:howtohelp].

    • Simplify amount of items to prioritize the more important ones.
    • Clarify intent of left-hand navigation in documentation sections.

  • Have clearly identifiable content
    • Remove visual clutter, such as excessive borders and boxes
    • Make each section visually distinct for stronger visual clarity.
  • Adapt to various screen sizes
    • Maybe use Twitter bootstrap?
    • Navigation on smaller screen needs to get out of the way of content.
