Hi Al, we mostly use the telephone

<Al> OK, will join you now

Al are you on the phone

discussion of <col> and <colgroup>

discussion of draft response for accesskey

author proposes/user disposes

mobile devices want to change the accesskey based on the device, not leave it up to the user/author

related to onchange on wwwhtml list

need to wok on future implementation of accesskey in xhtml2 and new browser implementation and repair for accesskey in html4

discussion of draft requirements

problem is knowing what the associations are.

base user agents don't have a way to expose accesskey bindings, the task has been taken by the Assistive Technology.

there is a requirement in UAAG for users to query the agent to find the bindings

say explicitly: User must be able to get a listing of keybindings for accesskeys

the user agent must do this, menu option. built into UA not left to AT repair or Author styling or other indicaton of accesskey

what about internationalization? if an accesskey is ~n, and I don't have it on my keyboard, how is it negotiated.

make interationalization a comment.

users needs to be able to change keys, but not necessarily anykey to anykey2

don't want to bind to key only, multimodal wants it broader.

discussion of how to expose accesskey, author supplied styling, UA exposing, using roles and let user define

desktop borwsers could expose this information to the user, but don't.

if UA use/expose accesskey to user in a standard way (using an api)

then AT could gather the bindings/roles and expose them in alternative ways to users. Authors might be more inclined to use accesskey if they did not have to style or provide other indication of accesskey on a page.
