HTML module on keyboard navigation


this is to close action-294

I talked to Robin, and the conclusion is that it would be good if the Task Force took up the work of producing a new HTML module to replace accesskey, probably tabindex, and potentially other bits of keyboard focus stuff that are floating loose in the spec, or (eg as per bug 27787) probably should be in the spec but are not.

Before drafting a formal Call for Consensus to take this on as a deliverable I thought I would call for comments.
