Status of this Document

This document has been produced for the User Agent Guidelines Working Group (UAWG) to summarize responses from assistive technology developers to a request made a the 28 Mar 2002 teleconference. This summary is likely to change at any time, and represents no consensus. This summary is expected to help the UAWG refine the requirement in UAAG 1.0 pertaining to communication between a conforming user agent and other software such as assistive technologies.

1. Content/ui/event/api requirements

The following table organizes content requirements expressed by AT developers. The table indicates by @@ where these requirements are not met by the W3C XML Infoset Recommendation (see email on establishing minimal set of API requirements in terms of the Infoset, for both XML and HTML).

Note: A linear version of this table is also available.
