Steve,

Well, AFIK the context menu is a service by the User Agent for that particular HTML element,
shouldn't be this discussed between UA and AT? 

UA should announce to the AT, that it has stuffed the link element with a context menu.
Maybe a clear case for some of the AIA members http://www.atia.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=3752 to discuss..

Regards
Stefan

Hi Stefan,
what I have is a link that has a custom context menu.

> <a aria-haspopup="true">

is it superfluous? as there is no indication via accessibility APIs
that a standard link has a context menu.
