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 

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.
