I need to clarify what the exact meaning is for checkpoint 8.1 "Make 
programmatic elements such as scripts and applets directly accessible 
or compatible with assistive technologies [Priority 1 if 
functionality is important and not presented elsewhere, otherwise 
Priority 2.]"

For example, if I have a drop-down menu used for navigation, where 
javascript makes this work, it needs to be able to be used via 
keyboard only - or the same links must be elsewhere on the page, in a 
keyboard-useable manner. Am I on the right track here?

(I've found an example that is keyboard- accessible - at 
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/index.html )
