Use interim accessibility solutions so that assistive technologies and older browsers will operate correctly.

10.1 - Until user agents allow users to turn off spawned windows, do not cause pop-ups or other windows to appear and do not change the current window without informing the user.  Priority 2 

10.2 - Until user agents support explicit associations between labels and form controls, for all form controls with implicitly associated labels, ensure that the label is properly positioned.  Priority 2 

10.3 - Until user agents render side-by-side text correctly, provide a linear text alternative (on the current page or some other) for all tables that lay out text in parallel, word-wrapped columns.  Priority 3 

10.4 - Until user agents handle empty controls correctly, include default, place-holding characters in edit boxes and text areas.  Priority 3 

10.5 - Until user agents render adjacent links distinctly, include non-link, printable characters (surrounded by spaces) between adjacent links.  Priority 3
