Description steve faulkner 2010-08-27 13:59:55 UTC
Consider providing in the ARIA section of the spec clear unambigous user firendly linked references to the various WAI-ARIA documents. To make it as easy as possible for authors to learn more about WAI-ARIA.
For example like those provided in this document:
Comment 1 steve faulkner 2010-08-27 14:02:20 UTC
 Consider adding an introduction to the WAI-ARIA section of the html5 spec talking about what WAI-ARIA is.
see for an example:
Comment 2 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2010-09-07 17:56:40 UTC
The plan is to do cross-references to the ARIA spec (indeed the markup is already ready for this); we're just waiting on the tools to be written to make this automatic.

Comment 3 Martin Kliehm 2010-12-14 17:41:01 UTC
The bug-triage sub-team doesn't consider this to be task force priority as it is just a matter of implementation. Note that ARIA is XML based and has XML features that can be parsed with XPath automatically that go beyond just classes and IDs.
