I'm currently reviewing an Internet site (the audience could be anyone and
everyone) that includes the word "missives" on its home page to describe a
site feature.  Since I'm a post-graduate student and I still wasn't sure
what the term meant (shame on me),  I thought maybe the site owner should
choose another word.  Does anyone have any insights/experiences/references
they could share?  How does one make sure he/she is writing to the right
reading level?  What is the right level for a general Web audience?  I've
heard that for newspapers its 8th grade.  Is this true on the Web as well?

Please respond directly to me and I'll post a summary to the list.  Thank
you!
