confusion--it's been a long day.


At our regular HTML-A11Y Teleconference on Thursday 29 April:

I was requested to draft and circulate resolution language implementing
our consensus guidance to the HTML-WG regarding ISSUE-32
"Table-Summary," http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/32 as agreed
in our teleconference.

This email provides this draft and serves as our Call for Consensus on
this question. Please expect a vote on the resolution at our upcoming
teleconference on Thursday 6 May.

Suggested edits, objections, additional comments, and votes by Task
Force members unable to attend the Thursday teleconference may be logged
by responding to this message no later than 23:59 Boston Time Friday 7
May (03:59Z Saturday 8 May).

Candidate Resolution

RESOLUTION: The HTML-A11Y Task Force supports the change proposal at
to reinstate table summary as conforming and not +obsolete. We adopt
this recommendation even as we continue engineering work on possible
enhancements to table summary. However,+any enhancements we might
propose would only elaborate on this proposal and, most particularly,
would not remove the support +for author provided text as has been
present in HTML4. Thus this recommendation serves as our baseline of
table summary support.
