Some thoughts on GL10:

10.1 Associate table cells and headers (P1)

- I wonder if this is just a special case of associating labels with the 
thing they label.


10.2 Highlight selection, content focus, enabled elements, visited links

- Highlighting "Enabled elements" may be problemmatic in an AJAX context
- what if link used as a button?
- "do not rely on rendered text foreground and background colors alone" 
seems to mean mean "use a border"?
- bullets for text size and font family seem odd considering these 
characteristics are rarely used for this kind of highlighting
-#4 is a a bit odd...if the user agent can allow the user to interact 
with the various enabled regions of the PNG why not allow them to be 
highlighted?


10.3 Single highlight configuration (P2)

- Suggest combining together with new multi-level format


10.4 Provide outline view (P2)

- "A label is not required to be text only" - Does not mean it could be 
image only?
- in examples: "The LABEL element is a label for the form element" seems 
much lower level than the other label examples (not exactly what one 
usually sees in a table of contents)


10.5 Provide link information (P3)

- a good candidate for multi-level format since some info (e.g. title) 
more important/easier to implement than others (e.g. natural language of 
linked resource)


10.6 Highlight current viewport (P1)

- Technique figures seem actually more applicable to 10.2


10.7 Indicate viewport position (P3)
- Maybe can be combined with 10.6 in multi-level structure.
- "Viewports" definition may need work. There is some logic to including 
loudspeakers and paper in the definition but when the definition is 
substituted-in in place like 10.7 it doesn't always make sense.

Cheers,
Jan
