Hello Herb,
    Thank you very much for your offer to help with the Design 
Handbook.  Jonathan and I have been doing a lot of revision work on the 
UX Walkthroughs section.  Originally the material was aimed at engaging 
people in the Fluid project, and encouraging contributions.  The intent 
is now to have a guide for novices (or experts) to perform their own UX 
Walkthroughs, independent of the Fluid project.  We also want to promote 
the UX Walkthrough as a valuable method developed and refined within the 
Fluid project.  While we talk about other methods, this is intended as 
background, showing that the Fluid UX Walkthrough is rooted in proven 
approaches, but has its own special value as a multi-dimensional 
assessment technique.

I think that the most helpful thing you could do for us is to review the 
whole UX Walkthroughs section from the point of view of a newcomer, and 
try to identify any inconsistencies, gaps, or other problems, and 
provide us with a critique of the whole section.  We're still doing some 
final revisions and refinements and a general critique would be of 
enormous value to us.  Having said that, we hope to soon complete our 
work on the section, and give other editors the opportunity to make 

Thanks and regards,
