Hi John, the AUI stands for Accessible User Interface, we had about a dozen suggestions and this was voted one of the best options to replace COGA as this specification goes beyond just Cognitive disabilities which is too narrow.

I personally wasn’t aware of this aui- class by Atlassain, but not sure if that really matters as these will be roles not a reserved class string, but it is somewhat unfortunate.

Hello all,

While I have a number of comments regarding this FPWD which I am collating now, I have an initial question for the TF: what is AUI in the aui-* standing for?

And is this TF aware that there are already a (private) collection of aui-* attributes (or, at least, reserved class strings) in use on the web today? Please see:

...as one example.

Thanks in advance.
