Related notes:

Might want to make this a UA "SHOULD" requirement if we don't have two implementations. I'm also not sure how explicit we can make this, because it relies on host language rules, but for example:

1. <iframe> with no in-document label could get its label from the "html > head > title" element of the iframe source.

2. <img src="foo.svg"> with no label could get its label from the "svg > title" element of the displayed image source.

3. <script src="foo"> (edge case example from the thread) would not apply because the source content is never rendered in any context.

Reassigning to the NameComp product.

Since the elements involved are either HTML or SVG, these rules belong in the html-aam and svg-aam. Suggest re-assigning to those products.

Rich to look at SVG-AAM and then coordinate with Steve Faulkner and Joseph on name computation basic, core, and HTML.

sorry, this is for name computation - reopened.

Richard Schwerdtfeger, 30 Jan 2016, 17:59:55

Move this to 1.2 because SVG is undetetermined as this point.
