I'm coming out of lurk mode to request comments on a page that's got both me
and my tester puzzled.

The page will become the front page of the Jones Library site and contains
news about upcoming and ongoing events. What's happened is that the main news
section (sort of the big headline) seems to have disappeared in Jaws.

My tester tells me: "What I hear is absolutely nothing. The reader just goes
on to the next heading which it says is 'In October,' I think it was."

What I hoped she would hear is something like: "At the library. Beginning
November 25th. Unicef Cards (short alt texts for 5 pictures of Unicef cards)
will be on sale in the Front Hallway."

Long descriptions will be added later this afternoon before we go live.

HTML and CSS are valid.

Many thanks,
