1. Group review on proposed change proposals encompassing:
- Canvas 2D API: focusring, caret positioning, blink rate, text
extent.These are needed regardless of text fields. Chuck indicated that he
would like to see it reviewed by WhatWG members as well before submitting
it for formal proposal. Rich note: Ian is not in favor of an API to set the
caret position that is not linked to drawing yet we have no alternative.
- Canvas: Initialization of resources (such as IFrame) in canvas

5. Action Items
 - 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:
http://www.quirksmode.org/dom/w3c_range.html
- Getting the selection object:
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/window.getSelection
- 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
