Seth:
Here is my stab.   At this point I think the main question is if we want to
add more detail.

first talked to him about this we're on a tight deadline   What we need,

Seth,
      Thanks for this. Charlie Thomas is going to step in on this project
for IF, so I am cc'ing him above. I hope to stay in the loop, too, so
please include both of us in your emails to IF. Thanks.

Mike,
For the Transparency project that I mentioned to you last week , I wanted
to send along the following mockups to give you an idea of what we might be
aiming for. I think we're inclined toward the first link (which
incorporates the next two). The fourth link is an alternate version that
Jim was less enamored of.
If you want to look at that to see where we're headed, it might make it
easier to see what we have in mind.
Give me a call if you have questions.

In advance of our meeting this afternoon, the links below will take you to
some mock-ups for your review and possible discussion at the meeting.

http://m-pubdev/monetarypolicy/default.htm
Click on Policymaking in left nav to see category. Click on the feature to
  go to a main index page.
  http://m-pubdev/monetarypolicy/bst.htm
  This is how the current navigation would like in the page. We're not big
  fans of this approach, but I think you said there is a possibility that
  some categories could merge.
  Click on Inflationary implications of expanded balance sheet to see an
  example of an lower-level page.

  All...

  The Chairman recently asked the staff to develop a "balance sheet transparency" website that could be made
  available to the public and that would address many of the types of questions raised in the press and by the
  Congress about the Federal Reserve's policy actions over recent months and the associated implications for the
  Federal Reserve's balance sheet. Our understanding is that he may refer to the website in his testimony next
  Monday and that the website would be unveiled around the time of his monetary policy testimony later in the
  month. The Chairman sketched out a rough outline of what he wanted on the website and we have taken a first
  shot at pulling it together. The URL for the website is listed below. At this point, we would greatly appreciate any
  comments that you and your colleagues can provide. In particular, we would especially value any comments that
  addressed...

  (b) (5)
   Many thanks in advance for any assistance that you and your colleagues can provide.

   Jim

   The general consensus is that this website is a great idea and already reflects a lot of really good work and our
   comments should be taken in that context. The following comments may sound negative, but hopefully they are
   constructive -- that's what you get when you ask for comments...

    __________________________

    That's it for now -- you asked for comments by COB and I thought I could manage this by COB for Monetary Affairs,
    which means you have it with hours to spare! Really, I think you guys have done a terrific job in pulling this
    together in short order, especially with everything else on your plate. Please let us know if you have questions
    about any of our comments or would like to discuss any of them further. I will be on Jury Duty tomorrow, but I
    REALLY hope to be back on Thursday.

   Greg,
   We're working on the transparency website this weekend to get it to the Chairman and Vice Chairman on Tuesday.
   I'm going to be revising the page on the balance sheet today and was hoping that you could get me that definition
   of the interdistrict settlement account. Also, have you seen the version of the release with the pop-up definitions?
   Look under "Table 1 description" on this link.

   http://m-pubdev/ma/bst/monetarypolicy/bst14.htm

   I think it's kinda nifty.

   Talk to you soon.

  So, on the information for table 10, if you could send that to me and Julie
  Jackson, who is the manager of PubWeb, that would be great. They are in
  the middle of making the changes and we hope to have a final version today,
  so the sooner the text can get to her the better.
  Thanks,

  Brenda,
  Thanks. It was a loooooong, weekend and not in the good sense that every
  other federal employee thought of it as a long weekend.
  If you still have time and inclination for helping, that would be
  fantastic.
  http://pubdev.frb.gov/ma/bst/monetarypolicy/bst14.htm
  This is the page on the H.4.1. If you think that there is a couple or
  three sentences to give more information on table 10, that would be great.
  It currently has "Title Here Text Here " as a holding place for an
  explanation
  You should ignore tables 8 and 9 for now, they are being updated.   That
  updating should be done in a couple hours, so if you have time this
  afternoon, say after 2:00, and want to look over the whole page, that would
  be great. It would be awful to get the accounting wrong!
Thanks,
sbc

Seth: As much as I could get through, it looks good. My comments are more
related to readability, but wouldn't significantly affect
understandability. I would suggest that I get them to you after the debut
and we can see what you think. Does that work?

You could send them to me when you have them. I'm leaving soon to catch a

as well, but have intermittent luck logging on from the road.

  Greg, I am out today and can't access the website. If the wording is wrong

  Thanks.
