Hello Everyone,

This week's HTML Accessibility Resolved & Rejected Bug report is
pretty much identical to last week's report [1] as the task force
didn't make any bug decisions and Ian made just two resolutions. The
two resolutions since January 13 are:

* One bug was marked WORKSFORME. (Gregory's 8745)
* One bug was marked INVALID. (Gez's 8755)

They are incorporated in the full report below. The HTML5
Accessibility Bug Status Table is at:

Bug Report Details:

1. We currently have no "REMIND" or "MOVED" bugs. I will add those
categories if we receive any bugs labeled in that fashion.

2. We have one "INVALID" a11y Bug that the Task Force may want to make
sure we are in agreement is in fact invalid:

http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8755 (Gez Lemon reported
this bug for WAI)

3. We currently have three a11y "DUPLICATE" bugs that seem like
duplicates to me.


4. We have a number of "FIXED" a11y Bugs that the Task Force may want
to make sure we agree are indeed fixed. They include:

http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8524 (Jeanne Spellman
reported this bug for AUWG)
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8656 (Gez reported this
bug for WAI)
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8658 (Gez reported this
bug for WAI)
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8668 (Gez reported this
bug for WAI)
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=7404 (Canvas related)
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8187 (Kelly Ford
reported this audio description bug)
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8525 (Jeanne Spellman
reported this bug for AUWG)

In case I missed any "FIXED" a11y Bugs that you think the task force
should look at further, the full "FIXED" listing is at:

5. We have one "LATER" a11y Bug that the Task Force may want to make
sure we are in agreement with postponing:

http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=5758 (Jim Jewett's 2008
Audio Video Bug).

6. We have two "WORKSFORME" a11y Bug that the Task Force may want to
make sure works for everyone:

http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8745 (Gregory reported
this Deprecation of the use of TABLE for Layout bug)

http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8617 (Gez reported this
icon attribute bug for WAI)

7. I would recommend that the Task Force look at the a11y NEEDSINFO
query to see if there are ways we can help give Ian the information
that he needs.

Quite a few a11y bugs that Gez entered are marked "NEEDSINFO".

8. I would also recommend that the task force look at the a11y WONTFIX
query to see if we are in agreement that these bugs do not need to be
fixed or have been escalated to issues. There are currently sixteen
