This came from Jon Gunderson, but I think it is extremely helpful information
to add to AERT 10.1.2 - a technique for ATAG 4.1, listed in Jan's November
draft available from the sources area.

There are seven main types of information that I think a user agent could
recognize in scripts that are associated with our checkpoints related to
control of viewports, focus, styling effects and form submission.  Examples
for JavaScript are provided.

1. Opening a new window

	for Javascript:

	myWindow.open("www.w3.org", "My New Window");
	myWindow.showHelp(URI);

2. Closing a window

	for Javascript:

	myWindow.close()

3. Changing focus to another window

	For Javascript:

	myWindow.focus();

4. Changing the URI rendered in the current view port

	For Javascript:

	myWindow.home();
	myWindow.forward();
	myWindow.back();
	myWindow.navigate("http://www.w3.org");

	myWindow.history.back();
	myWindow.history.forward();
	myWindow.history.go( -2 );

	location.href = "http://www.w3.org"
	location.reload();
	location.replace("http://www.w3.org");

5. Submitting forms:

	For Javascript:

	document.form[0].submit();
	document.all.mySubmitButton.click();

6. Controlling the start and speed of scrolling for a MARQUEE element

	for Javascript:

	document.all.myBanner.start();
	document.all.myBanner.scrollDelay = 100

7. Changes in style of an element:

	document.all.myElement style.color = "red";
