I'm drafting some content for the main website (not the wiki)
describing just what Fluid Infusion is, for people who may not have
the time or inclination to sift through the content on the wiki.
I wouldn't mind some eyes reviewing the text, and letting me know if
I've left anything out. Any comments are welcome.

What is Infusion?
Fluid Infusion is a collection of resources designed to improve the
user experience of community source web applications.
• a Component Library - a small but growing collection of rich,
reusable, accessible user interface components that can be used across
web applications. These components have been designed by a cross-
disciplinary team and thoroughly tested for usability and
accessibility. By incorporating Fluid components into your web
application's user interface, you can make your application easier to
use by more people.
• a User Experience Toolkit - resources, tools, and documentation
to help make user interface design and implementation easier. The
toolkit includes personas and scenarios for common use cases within
higher education, user interface design patterns, testing protocols,
and accessibility guidelines intended to simplify the design process.
The Component Library includes:
• Layout Customizer
• Multi-File Uploader
• Documentation and Tutorials on how to use the components
• Markup examples
• Test files
The User Experience Toolkit includes:
• User Interface Design Patterns
• Checklists and protocols for doing User Experience walkthroughs
and Accessibility reviews
• Profiles and Personas
• User Testing guidelines
• Results of user testing and other evaluations
