hi folks,

Michelle and I looked over the current implementation of UI Options and made a list of things to fix up, as well as a small to-do list for getting UI Options up on the inclusivedesign.ca website (dev.inclusivedesign.ca to start).

I've made JIRAs for the work I'll be doing:

FLUID-3742 - table of contents fix so one doesn't have define in init script (set default)
FLUID-3743 - add preview url as an option, right now hard-coded
FLUID-3745 - improve/update documentation
FLUID-3733  w/ sub tasks - add UI Options to IDI site
FLUID-3738 - noteable subtask about creating a Drupal module to install infusion properly within the CMS
FLUID-2616 - UI Options should load its own template

James and I have also been doing quite a bit of chatting on the design of UI Options itself... variations on how to present the customization controls in a way that's intuitive, not too overwhelming, easily available, and makes everyone happy - no small feat!

The BBC accessibility case studies are a good read FYI: http://www.bbc.co.uk/accessibility/bbc/case.shtml
