MS: These 4 bugs were all filed by David MacDonald after reviewing SteveF's work on ALT. Steve has assigned them to himself and is happy to work on them.

HTML5 Testing effort

<chaals> HTML WG sense of what works and what needs tests

CN: the TF will be holding 2 planning sessions over the next couple weeks at 2PM ET to identify sections of the HTML5 spec which are currently considered interoperable but may need further testing for accessibility

…everyone here is invited to attend.

MS: Will the TF be responsible for creating the tests for the sections we feel need more testing?

CN: most definitely.

LW: this will be a good opportunity for us to collaborate with HTML WG
