Hello WG,

I completed my log of issues surrounding the HTML5 draft from the  
discussion of the WG up until August [1]. These are added in no  
particular order, though most of the high priority ones are also in  
the WGs issue-tracker (with the exception of the parsing issue[2]).

I've read through some of the emails since August and it seems that  
issues discussed since then were either 1) rehashes of one or more of  
these issues; 2) already inputted into the issue tracking system; 3) I  
couldn't understand the POV of the WG member and the discussion has  
long since petered out. So I think this covers most or even all of the  
major issues I see right now with the draft.

There are however, a few very minor issues and some questions that I  
will handle mostly through separate emails. For example:

   why has the table summary attribute issue been closed when its  
needed for table accessibility (I couldn't find any decision to close  
the issue on the list serve or teleconf minutes)? [3]
   why drop the abbr attribute from the table header cells when it  
provides needed accessibility support?
   why drop the axis attribute when it is only now achieving CSS  
support in major browsers?[4]
  * why is Ruby specified incompletely for HTML5 (no complex Ruby)? [5]

As I said, as these are new issues (to me anyway), I'll raise them in  
separate emails. The wiki pages are my attempt to distill prior  
discussions of the WG.

Take care,
Rob
