- Charles' Update to Canvas 2D API context (waiting for a post per last
- Zooming Discussions off list
- Access to Caret, Selection, Grammar errors, spelling errors
  - Rich's Discussion with David Bolter
  - Introduce elements for these in the shadow DOM? Is this preferred than
a direct API that accesses the contenteditable area?
  - Is API access to a contenteditable section preferred?

- Steps to assess what HTML elements are allowable in the shadow DOM
   - Review Charles' canvas element change proposal (attached). Is turning
off initialization sufficient for elements like Frame and IFrame?

- Action Item Frank: what API does IE use to track content selection and
carets in content editable areas?

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
