WASHINGTON (AP) - As the holiday weekend draws to a close with people returning to their regular routines, the Obama administration's revamped health care website is set to be tested under increased demand.

The arrival of an end of November deadline to repair the site hasn't stopped the work of hardware upgrades and software fixes which continued overnight. The administration says it's confident the goal has been reached and that fixes so far seem to be helping.

But questions remain about the stability of the site, the volume of traffic it can handle and the quality of the data it is delivering to insurers. And the site still won't be able to do everything the administration wants. Companion sites for small businesses and Spanish speakers have been delayed.

Weeks of bad publicity about its troubles marred the website's rollout and the president hopes this marks a fresh start.
