Thank you for this response. However the link at http://intranet.cdc.gov/cdcweb/web/wcms/wcms-standards-and-guidelines/ is not available to me. It does not return anything. Could it be that this is an an internal link that only works in your office? I ask because the URL beings with "intranet."

If you could please provide the document as an email attachment I believe that would likely satisfy my request.
