Hi Alan,

Responding to a few particular bits:

> 1) The tooltips that are overlapped look to be from the ZoomText product alone.

If the overlapping issue was due to one particular user-agent that would undermine that aspect, however, it does happen on OSX with the increased cursor size.


> 2) Furthermore, the other premise that is not correctly documented is that HTML5 Recommendation warning authors against the use of which is not fully quoted. 

Is there any harm in bolstering the issue with a WCAG guideline? It would certainly make the case for the advice in HTML5 easier, and could prevent issues like this in future.


> 3) The attempt to write up that this information needs to be available through more than one mechanism will put undue demands for developers based on a false premise of a bug with Zoom Text and not the user agents.

It sounds like an adjustment is needed to make it more general.

Cheers,

-Alastair
