David,

As many changes are being made today to the web site, I'll try to
incorporate these ideas. Currently, I have added a small blurb to the
home page with voter verifiable ballot, and I hope it correctly
represents the ideas of the group. "The systems will also support voter
verified ballots, allowing every voter to confirm their choices and
providing a paper record for every vote."

The new site won't have frames, so it will just open in the same
window. If the EVM2003 link opens in a new window, we have to tell
blind voters, otherwise they may not catch it. Therefore, I think it is
best that it open in the same window for now, with plans in the near
future for the EVM2003 site to use the OVC header, bypassing the issue.
