Hi Paul,

We fully appreciate your intention to make significant progress, if not close, as many of the bugs currently preventing HTML from exiting CR at this F2F.  We unfortunately do not have key Task Force participants in attendance, or without conflicting engagements, to discuss some of these bugs.  However, we may be able to get the appropriate participants either on the phone or here in person to clarify a plan for resolving these bugs.  I propose the following order for reviewing these bugs to accommodate scheduling with the appropriate people:

4:00 Janina may be able to clarify next steps for the following three bugs if they can be discussed at 4:00. This agenda item is scheduled to end at 4:00.  We should be able to borrow some time from the Longdesc Update scheduled to follow at 4:00 to accommodate this.

The HTML WG Editors and Chairs would like to have a discussion of the A11Y-related CR bugs at the HTML WG F2F this week in Shenzhen.  I know that many A11Y TF members that are in Shenzhen are attending the Indie UI WG meeting on Thu and Fri.
