Dear Colleagues:

Many of you in the CSS Working Group will recall that the Accessible
Platform Architectures (APA Working Group has raised concerns across
various CSS specs in recent years. It is, therefore, very encouraging to
APA see that active work on these issues is expressly called out in your
draft CSS charter. We look forward to working with you!

In the interest of organizing this work in time to hold substantive
joint conversations during the upcoming TPAC in Lisbon, we have created
a draft Work Statement for this joint activity, and welcome your
reactions and comments on it. Please note that we include the ARIA
Working Group in this TF because all W3C/WAI Accessibility API Mapping
(AAM) specifications are coordinated by the ARIA Working Group who are,
consequently, cc'd in this email. Our proposed draft WS can be found at:


We have also created an initial summary of identified issues, together
with affected CSS specifications, available at:


Please respond to this email with any comments and suggestions, as we
work to jointly organize this effort.

Thanking you all in advance, and looking forward to a productive and
successful joint effort,

Janina Sajka,
APA Chair
