list below). Are they adequate?

- Steps to assess what HTML elements are allowable in the shadow DOM
- Action Item Frank: what API does IE use to track content selection and
carets in content editable areas?
- What are the next steps to address Rich Text Editing in HTML 5?
   - Need to be able to get and set selections to/from contenteditable
areas and input controls
   - need to be able to get and set caret position in these areas
   - Need to be able to ensure text content wrapping in non-visible shadow
   - Need to be able to acquire grammar and spell checking errors in
content editable areas (these would be ranges)
   - Can we achieve a common API for these across browsers
- Need to develop examples
   - What is status of Charles being able to share code examples of rich
text editing?
   - Rich is modifying Hixie's code from 2D API spec. to meet our
modifications (Spec. code has bugs)

Reference Material APIs:
- Browser API Comparisons for Caret Tracking and Content Selection:
- Getting the selection object:
- sel = window.getSelection() //sel is a Selection object
- rangex = sel(0);
- rangex.collapsed(); //If it is collapsed it is a caret
- reangex.collapse();

Reference: revisions to 2D Context API - modifications
