Description steve faulkner 2013-02-16 18:18:43 UTC
section 3.2.7 WAI-ARIA http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/dom.html#wai-aria does not include clear advice for authors on which ARIA roles,states and properties can be used on any given HTML element. Using ARIA in HTML does https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/aria-unofficial/raw-file/tip/index.html suggest adding a refernce to it in section 3.2.7 WAI-ARIA and also providing clear reference to WAI-ARIA authroing practices spec as an aid to authors.
