[Athen] Thoughts on DAISY

Interesting article. However, I take exception to the section about
topic sentences and main ideas. If someone wants to do markup for such
things, then I, as a non-disabled person, want the same for my books.

If I had had textbooks in college that highlighted the main topic
sentences, I'd have never had to read a textbook all the way through.

I'm sorry, where's the equal access in this idea? To me this sounds
like way more than equal access, this sounds like learning tools added
in to the document, and that, to me, sounds more like enabling than
equal access.

Did anyone else notice this?
