26 August 1999 - GL meeting

Table of contents

  1. Agenda


  1. Discussion of labeling and grouping navigation links. Discussion of grouping and bypassing links in the techniques issues list
  2. From the UA call on 25 August 1999: Checkpoint 1.5 is too specific. (Until user agents render text equivalents for client-side image map links, provide redundant text links for each active region of a client-side image map. [Priority 3]) The goal is not to render text links, but to make those links available. I propose it should be reworded to something like: Make links available in a device-independent manner.
  3. Handling metadata. What should UA's do for metadata included by authors? Is there any general schema?

Summary of action items

  1. Raise awareness with AC Members about enhancing accessibility in HTML 4.01.
  2. WC: Propose techniques based on this discussion.
  3. IJ: Send proposal to GL list about broadening language of checkpoing 1.5 to refer to device-independence, not just text.
