Hi all,

here are my thoughts on the bugs that were assigned to Marco (get well
soon) and me:


- Bug 8674: Add popup as a value for the type attribute for menu element
   http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8674

In Comment #2 http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8674#c2
Michael says this bug doesn't have priority.

Within the spec is an example with nested menus that provide this
functionality. I'd suggest to close the bug.


- Bug 8681: Separator menu items
   http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8681

An option with an empty value, disabled state and one or more hyphens as 
text creates a seperator node that's equal to a hr.

I don't see any accessibility issue here. Suggest to close it.


- Bug 8754: Overflow when text is resized
   http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8754

When an author sets overflow:hidden and a user resizes text, Gez
proposes that the browser sets overflow:scroll

I oppose this proposal. The default for iframe scrolling is auto which
corresponds to overflow:auto, thus scrollbars would appear anyway. If an 
author decides to set overflow:hidden the browser should never override 
that decision in a different mode. Also Ian is right that current 
browsers generally zoom content by pixels so that it's unlikely that the 
text alone is resized. I suggest accepting the resolution and closing 
the bug.


- Bugs 8827 + 8872:
   Inappropriate spec text and advice where images are not known;
   Split out and modify parts of Section 4.8.2.1 the img element
   http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8827
   http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8872

Alt text is escalated to http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/31 -
Keep these bugs open, but IMHO no further action required. Does 8827
need the keyword TrackerIssue?


Cheers,
   Martin
