<scribe> scribe: janina

steve: plan was to go through aria mapping tables--not done
... had a medical emergency--sorry
... also had to get our alt doc ready for html heartbeat publication this week

cyns: table or tr as toolbar

rich: ah, yes

cyns: it's the shrinking behavior

cyns which is hard with css

steve: seems we need to specify the allowable roles, seems button wouldn't fit

cyns: think structural elements should be overwritable by any
... i think of a table cell as similar to a paragraph

steve: i'm trying to find the taxonomy logic for all these mappings

michael: isn't there a contextual issue? if we overwrite a td, what about the parent

cyns: we need some best practices on how to turn table into a toolbar ...

change proposal http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Jun/0099.html and

steve: seems to be a counterproposal to my proposal

cyns: about issue 85

rich: one can't enforce authors doing stupid stuff

<Stevef> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Jun/0108.html

cyns: we've our proposal, ian has his, what's the procedure

steve: his is basically 'don't allow links to be buttons'

<Stevef> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9871 and http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9872

cyns: his proposal is incomplete, misrepresents our proposal

steve: thought it worthwhile bringing it to our attention as it's a counterproposal to ours

cyns: worried this proposal attacks aria architecture, says it shouldn't be used for the purpose it was designed for
