My favorite line from the document "WRITING USER-FRIENDLY DOCUMENTS" (their
capitals, not mine) on http://www.plainlanguage.gov/:

"There's also a long list of simple words you can substitute for jargon on

our web site,
plainlanguage.gov, in the reference library."

Perhaps a rewording would be useful: "Our web site--plainlanguage.gov--has
in its reference library a long list of simple words you can substitute for
jargon."
