Agenda:

This week we will be discussing a number of topics that have been active on
the list.  Goal is to get closure if possible -- but good progress at least.
I don't expect we will close them all -- but lets see if we can come
prepared and have a good discussion.


1. Accesskey alternative, most common access types 
   refer to Becky's starter message at: 
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-gl/2004AprJun/0773.html>

2. programmatically located, issue 330
<http://trace.wisc.edu/bugzilla_wcag/show_bug.cgi?id=330>
We have a number of terms and we need to define them.  One appears to be
redundant with another as well. 
"derived programmatically", 
"programmatically determined", 
"programmatically located" and 
"programmatically identified"
Jason posted one set of definitions that are listed at the end of the
agenda.  John is working on a version that might be available for the
meeting.   [1]

3. Definition of authored unit

I have made a quick search of the document, and noticed that we say
"derived programmatically" (guideline 1.3), "programmatically
determined", "programmatically located" and "programmatically
identified" under principle 3. One solution would be:

"Programmatically determined" - is available in a standard
machine-readable form (e.g., in markup, a data model or metadata) that
can be processed by software.

"Programmatically located" - is available in a machine-readable form,
or as text in a natural language, that can be reliably found by
searching or data traversal mechanisms implemented in user agents or other
tools. To satisfy this requirement it suffices that a list of relevant
alterantives (e.g., alternative definitions of a word) can be found.

"Programmatically identified" - is available in a machine-readable
form, or as text in a natural language, that can be reliably found by
searching or data traversal mechanisms implemented in user agents or other
tools. To satisfy this requirement it is necessary to provide
sufficient information to enable software to locate the exact item
required; it is not sufficient that a list of alternatives can be
identified.

This is a very rough attempt at some definitions.
