Proposed resolution to Issue 547

From: Jon Gunderson <jongund@uiuc.edu>
Date: Wed, 25 Sep 2002 12:56:38 -0500
Message-Id: <5.1.0.14.2.20020925124701.02124eb0@staff.uiuc.edu>
To: w3c-wai-ua@w3.org

I propose the following changes to Provision 1 of Checkpoint 1.2 to limit 
the range of event handlers to those that can be activated through the user 
interface:

Old:
"Allow the user to activate, through keyboard input alone, all event 
handlers that are explicitly associated with the element designated by the 
content focus. "

New:
"All event handlers that can be triggered through user input devices (i.e. 
onMouseOver, onMouseOut, onFocus, onBlur... ) must include at least one 
activation method through the keyboard."
