comment Why do traffic lights have three separate light bulbs instead of having one?
A single light with different colors for each state (go, stop, etc.) might be difficult for people with color blindness if it is always the same shape, but it would be pretty easy to display shapes when you're using a grid of multi color leds. So green could be an arrow shape, red a cross shape and a warning could be an exclamation mark. That way it wouldn't make any difference if you were color blind or not. Maybe it would even be better since it is more descriptive than three similarly shaped lights.

@MattObee, no not really. It's not like they have to complete sales transactions or registrations or anything. The website as a whole is purely informational (so not a lot of interactivity).

Yeah, I've thought about that. I could use anchors to redirect to a specific area on the page. Would you say that's better than a popover/expanding area?
