Hello WAI XTech,

Well it seems we haven't been able to reach consensus yet on accesskey:
whether it should focus+activate or just focus.

The idea of using a media query to distinguish was rejected by some.

The current proposal is now:

    A user agent SHOULD just focus when an accesskey is used.
    A user agent MUST supply a user option to choose between focus and

So this still allows the phone people to do focus and activate, while making
it clear that the usual behaviour is to just focus.

Is there anybody who *cannot* live with this?

Best wishes,

Steven Pemberton
