I failed to cope with participating and scribing, so here is a rough
post-hoc reconstruction of where we got.

* agenda
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/wai-xtech/2005Apr/0008.html

* log
http://www.w3.org/2005/04/15-pf-irc

* participants
Hadi Bargi Rangin
Jon Gunderson (chair)
Rich Schwerdtfeger
John Slatin
Al Gilman (scribe)
Matt May

* actions
John Slatin will ask UT webmaster to create some further examples, 
refer them to Jon Gunderson
for orientation to what is involved.

discuss workplan more on next PF call; review progress on CG call too.

** summary

* markup

Q.1 Should the html4:link.href value be the ID of
a) a header or other content labeling or introducing the section?
b) a container element containing the whole section in question?

A.1 b), a container element.  If there is an existing element such as
a FORM or UL that contains the right stuff, ID and point to it.
If there is no single element containing the right range of stuff,
wrap in a DIV with ID and point to that.

This implies that AT will sort out how to start browsing, given
a container as its target.  This may involve focusing a header,
it may involve a brief prompt summarizing the in-page breadcrumb
trail to where you are after the move.

Q.2 Should text suitable for use in the Table of Contents be
a) a 'title' attribute on the element pointed to
b) a 'title' attribute on the link pointing to

A.2 prefer a) but author may use b) if don't want to do a)
This implies that AT will look for version b) if not finding a)

* methods

Q.3 These sections are marked for move-to methods, no?

A.3 Yes for move-to; but also for show/hide/sort choices in page morphing
including summarization. Also possibly for an incremental method
something like DAISY 'escape' concept. This would move out of some
range you are currently [starting or in] to the next logical staring
point thereafter [next in whatever reading order -- that may be determined
by something else.]

This may turn out to be "move to the next identified navigation
destination [or navigation destination matching the current nav mode]"
in practice.
