I hope you get a response from mozilla-accessibility@mozilla.org , I need
this info.

This is an individual instance, what is needed is a central resource
indicating how to do what, it doesn't matter too much if resources are in
other domains provided the links are checked regularly, and the info is
good.
eg it seems that onfocus is reasonably well supported today and so tabbing
event can be made to emulate point click.
WAI is where people would expect to find this information, Not from their
browser accessibility group.
In fact of course people don't expect to find it because it isn't there....

Please could we (also) consider the strategic problem rather than the
details which are after all examples only?
