Response from the Working Group
================================
The trigger control is the page element referred to throughout the
procedure that opens the dialog or menu.

For "Check whether advancing the focus backwards in the sequential
navigation order puts focus on the trigger control." the user must be
able to navigate backwards through the menu or dialog to the element
that initially triggered the menu or dialog.

For example, a "Resources" link in a menu bar triggers a vertical
display of its sub-menu when the down-arrow key is pressed while the
link has focus. Navigating down the items in the sub-menu (advancing
the focus) is also achieved by pressing the down-arrow key. Pressing
the up-arrow key will advance the focus back up through the items in
the sub-menu (advancing the focus backwards). When the focus has
reached the top of the sub-menu the next up-arrow key press must place
the focus on the "Resources" link in order to satisfy step 2b of the
procedure, because the "Resources" link was the trigger control.
