Sam, Paul:

Looking just now at the (current) 9 October editor's draft:
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/textFieldSelection.html#the-hidden-attribute

I do not see changes following on the discussion at the TF call last
week:
http://www.w3.org/2012/10/04-html-a11y-minutes.html#item02

However, I also see actions on several individuals relating to Sec 7.1
recorded during that call that aren't due until Thursday.

So, it seems clear we need to update progress again this week.

Janina
