Hi Matt,

I have three editorial suggestions.

First, the end of the first sentence is "... that can dynamically popup 
to help the user set the value of the textbox".  "Popup" is not a verb.  
How about:  "... that is shown dynamically in a popup to help the user 
set the value of the textbox".

Secondly, in the section on aria-autocomplete, the value table is 
ordered "both", "inline", "list".  "Both" is described in terms of 
"list" and "inline".  It might be easier to understand if the order was 
"inline", "list", and then "both" since that order builds up to the 
combination of inline and list.

Thirdly, the description of the "list" value begins "A list of choices 
...".  In this case, the options in the list are more than just choices, 
since they complete what the user has already entered.  How about:  "A 
list of predictions ...", or "A list of suggestions ...".
