Thanks for the great feedback!
I didn't really explain the mockups too well, but my intention for "More Info" was a direct link to the in-depth wiki article for each item (like this one<http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/Progress>), which *should* have the details you are looking for. The actual demo page itself should also have that information, I think.

This will be a HUGE benefit to Fluid's prospective adopters. A couple of
questions. Should "View Demo" be "Try Demo"? Also, in "More Info", you
may want to include a description of how the components work, especially
wrt keyboard and screen reader use. Thank you for doing this and looks
