please review "XHTML Role Attribute Module" working draft

From: Dan Connolly <connolly@w3.org>
Date: Fri, 17 Aug 2007 10:48:12 -0500
To: "public-html@w3.org WG" <public-html@w3.org>
Message-Id: <1187365692.29837.596.camel@pav>

The November 2006 XHTML Role attribute spec says it
is "nearly complete" "relatively mature";
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-role/
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-xhtml-role-20061113

We have been asked by the W3C WAI PF WG to integrate
the role attribute into HTML 5 in order to facilitate
Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA).
http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/ARIAIntegration

A last call release of the spec is expected soon,
with comments due around 7 September. The content
is supposed to be largely unchanged from the 20061113
draft.

So if you have any comments on the XHTML Role
Attribute Module spec, please send them
to www-html-editor@w3.org ; do *not* reply in this thread with
comments on the XHTML role spec.


If you would like your comments to be endorsed by
the HTML Working Group as a whole, point to them in
a reply to this message.

For example:

citation for definition of QName in XHTML Role spec unclear Dan Connolly

full URIs of XHTML Roles such as banner, contentinfo, ...? Dan Connolly
(Friday, 17 August)
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-html-editor/2007JulSep/0018.html

Those are not comments that I actually think this Working Group
should endorse; they're just examples of how to send comments
and cite them here.
