ISSUE-116: What are appropriate uses of role=presentation

Presentation uses

What are appropriate uses of role=presentation

State:
CLOSED
Product:
ARIA 1.0
Raised by:
Michael Cooper
Opened on:
2009-02-12
Description:
Raised in a WAI CG discussion on text alternatives:

"An element whose content equivalent is already conveyed in the document" isn't appropriate for having the "presentation" role because then it should have a "describedby" reference, not marked as presentation. This would be an explicit violation of WCAG.

Related notes:

Unilaterally flipping to open to trigger discussion Monday, Gregg is afraid comments on this could trigger a 2nd LC if we don't address.
