hi all,
 As discussed in yeserdays HTML WG meet [1] (and previously), I was assigned
an action, but it does not appear to be in the tracker as yet. I have made a
start on a table (matrix?) that shows mapping of HTML 5 elements to ARIA
roles and the MSAA API (chosen as an example API) and provides indications
of what roles and states should be considered conforming for HTML 5 document
authoring purposes. plus notes on why.

I ended up creating a document in a format that is quite different from
henri's (http://hsivonen.iki.fi/aria-html5-bis/) (mainly because, i found
the format difficult to work with).

*This is a very early draft, much of the content is missing.*
*None of the content has any consensus or has been reviewed by anybody.*
*It is subject to complete change.*

I am not looking for feedback on any of the document conformance suggestions
at this time, what I would appreciate is feedback on the format that the
content is in, is it understandable? is it a workable format for providing
the detail required?
