aaron and jon to talk offline.
new issue - iframe, modify tab navigation to include iframe. what is the
behavior...tab into and through iframe then out of frame
kl in windows control-tab to move between frames, could include iframe
dp mozilla - each frame is its own document. when you tab you only move
within one frame. must use other keys to move between frames.
kl ok to tab through links move to next frame and follow links there, screen
reader announces frame boundary, treat the frame set as one document.
jg mozilla has same behavior as IE, puts focus on entire frame, then next
tab moves into frame. concern about caret movement.
caret should also move through the frameset as one document.
move discussion to uaag list.
kl search. in IE can't search across all frames. inconsistencies with focus
movement between frames.
jg should add these to test suite to illustrate the issues.

**jg resurrect issues list add following items focus movement,

as you add items to test suites then the completed implementation report
will show a non-rated item for that test
