Hello Everyone,

Since the last report we have had:

3 WONTFIX bug resolutions. Details are in section 1.
1 NEEDSINFO bug resolution. Details are in section 2.
1 REOPENED bug. Details are in section 3.
2 NEW a11y bugs reported. Details are in section 4.
1 CLOSED bug. Details are in section 5.

A backlog of 29 a11y bugs on the HTML5 Spec await task force decision
of whether to apply the a11ytf keyword or not. Details are in section
6.

16 total NEW a11y bugs existed on December 18, 2010. A December 18
snapshot is at:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Bugs/New_A11Y_Bug_Snapshot_20101218

Pre and post last call bugs are identified in each item. According to
the HTML Chairs' message regarding deadlines, January 22 is the cutoff
for escalating bugs for pre-LC consideration. All issues need to be in
the HTML working group tracker by that date. The consequence of
missing the January 22 deadline is that any further escalations will
be treated as a Last Call comments.

The HTML5 Accessibility Bug Status is at:

Details are as follows.


1. WONTFIX BUGS:

5.1 Bug 10723: "Support for media fragment URIs in relevant HTML5
elements" reported by Silvia Pfeiffer. (Pre Last Call1 Bug)
Reopened by Raphael Troncy.
Comment: "The Media Fragments WG would like to re-open this bug entry.
We further detail below why we think this bug impacts HTML5 and its
interaction with the Media Fragments URI specification..."

Ian's Rationale: see above
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10723#c11

1.1 Bug 10963: "Table prohibited from being used as a layout aid"
reported by Rich Schwerdtfeger. (Pre Last Call1 Bug)
On Tuesday Sam Ruby closed this bug and Issue 130 without prejudice as
no one had written a Change Proposal by the deadline. He added the
"WGDecision" keyword.

1.1 Bug 11395: "Use media queries to select appropriate <track>
elements" reported by Frank Olivier. (Post Last Call1 Bug)

to <track> later if it turns out that this works well."

2. NEEDSINFO BUGS:

2.1 Bug 11152: "Polyglot spec should mention accessibility" reported
by Tony Ross on the "HTML/XHTML Compatibility Authoring Guide" doc.
Eliot's comment: "I'm still looking into whether there are any issues
in accessibility that are specific to polyglot markup and are not
duplicates of HTML issues in general. If any arise, I will reopen this
bug. Feel free to do so if any occur to you, as well. In the meantime
I am resolving it as NEEDS INFO. Thanks for the suggestion"
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=11152


3. REOPENED BUGS:

3.1 Bug 11540: "The willful violation clause is most unwise. A
standard should not violate another standard for any reason..."
reported by contributor@whatwg.org. (Post Last Call1 Bug)
Reopened by Laura Carlson.
Comment: "Reopening. Would like to hear editor's rationale. Also
applicable to 'willful violations' of WCAG and other accessibility
guidelines."

4. NEW BUGS (All of these are Post Last Call1 Bugs):

4.1 Bug 11533: "Clarify if specially focusable elements mean 'all
elements with defined valid tabindex' or 'elements with a tabindex
that allows sequential focusing.'" reported by contributor@whatwg.org.
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=11533

4.1 Bug 11557: "Authors should not be allowed to specify roles on
elements that they already have by default. It's redundant and
encourages authors to add roles in cargo-cult fashion on the theory
that this will improve their accessibility reported by
contributor@whatwg.org
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=11557
