Broaching the Canvas tag


I've been working with the Canvas tag and the Canvas 2d Context since 
early 2007.

Link to the Canvas 2d Context:

I'm developing a supplemental document for WCAG relating to Canvas 
authors and outlining the practical cases I've been able to achieve for 
WCAG 2.0 compliance.

That said, there are a lot of asterisks needed whenever I use the word 
compliance and Canvas in the same sentence.
Notice the three asterisks following this sentence. ***.

Canvas is a low level graphics API which requires of authors a level of 
skill and programmatic structure that is often regarded as "too 
difficult" by many developers representing browser vendors.
When they're not excreting caution about difficulty they discount web 
developers as error-prone and inconsiderate, and our attention as 
inefficient and/or uneconomical. [Citations available].

I've thoroughly followed the WCAG principles this past year. Though I 
have not met every conformance criteria for AAA in my adventures, I feel 
that I have addressed sections in a manner which respect their intent.

Link to Understanding WCAG 2.0:

I will follow up in a month with early drafts of a Canvas tag 
supplemental to WCAG 2.0.

The draft is mean to broach the issue and will be followed up with 
actual techniques, inclusive of code samples and additional discussion.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, post them to the list 
or send them to me.
I will, to the best of my ability, address your correspondence.
