Description Gregory J. Rosmaita 2010-09-27 17:46:29 UTC
   If specified, the value must be an [161]ordered set of unique
   space-separated tokens, each of which must be exactly one Unicode code
   point in length.

PROBLEMS: "the value must be an ordered set of unique space-separated tokens"

1. a single character may be used for an accesskey assignment; the
spec should reflect this; 

2. although the spec uses the defined term "ordered set of unique
space-separated tokens" 

An accesskey attribute's value may be a single character or an ordered 
set of unique space-separated tokens. Each character must be exactly 
one Unicode code point in length and must be part of the document's 
declared character set.

Reviewing the bug for the Accessibility TF bug-triage sub-team I believe the fix for bug #10775 solved this issue. Changing the state to VERIFIED. @Gregory, if you concur please close the bug.

Bug triage sub-team does not think this needs to be a TF priority. Assigning to Gregory to address recommendation in comment 2.
