Comment Type: GE
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
A few years back I tried to pay my Sprint account online and found that even though I could submit a payment form via an image, the payment was not accepted because the x and y coordinates which are automatically submitted with the image (and are 0 in the case of a keyboard click) were both 0.  This was bad programming on their part, but the point is:

If an element has focus where a mouse click would take an action that takes the mouse location into account, then using the arrow keys at that point (or some other keyboard means) should allow the user to set the mouse position that will be used upon keyboard simulated clicking (such as using the spacebar) of the element.

This example may be too specific for this document, but I thought I\'d mention it as a concrete case that really troubled me.
