laura, your site is lovely, and a great resource i've used for a long time

your use of the term "anchor" in the above sentence is interesting

"section" might be better, as "anchor" implies the html mechanism by which
the section is reached

avoid describing a thing, if you just name it

thus, instead of "under the Evaluation anchor" say "under Evaluation"

naming a thing versus a reference to the thing is the semantic challenge
behind expressions such as "_click_here_" (for which anything would be
better) and "return to the _Home_ page" ("return _Home_" is better)

short is good, eh
