Re: {agenda} HTML WG telcon 2009-08-13

I would like to request an addition to the agenda: creation of an HTML
Accessibility Task Force. The PFWG has been discussing HTML
accessibility issues in a sub-group but would like to join this up with
members of the HTML WG so we can discuss issues more directly within
this channel. A goal would be to have specific focused work, and to use
this as a primary vehicle to support some of the work that has been
going on recently. The discussion would be on the public record.

We have put together a draft work statement for this task force at
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/html-task-force. We would like input from the
HTML WG on it and hopefully approve the creation of this as as a joint
task force of the two working groups.
