10.5 Provide link information (P3)
10.6 Highlight current viewport (P1)
10.7 Indicate viewport position (P3)
see previous comments at

11.1 Current user input configuration (P1)
no problems. Requirement 1. Provide information to the user about current
user preferences for input configurations.
These are not current user preferences, they are the default UA input
configurations. If the user overrides the bindings as per 11.3, I think 11.1
requires that the changes be noted in the documentation and the user
interface (menus, etc.).
Do others have the same understanding?

11.2 Current author input configuration (P2)
ok. The user can find the author-specified input configurations.
Should the user be able to override (change) these input configurations in
the UA, or should that be the function of AT?
For those who do not use AT, but have a need to change the input
configurations, I lean towards having the UA provide a mechanism for
changing the author-specified input configurations. Currently, we have no
guidelines, checkpoints, etc. pertaining to changing the author-specified
input configurations...should we?

11.3 Allow override of bindings (P2)
ok. see comments on 11.1

11.4 Single-key access (P2)
update -  Example Technique 1. Offer a single-key mode where, once the user
has entered into that mode (e.g., by pressing a single key), most of the
keys of the keyboard are configurable for single-key operation of the user
agent. Allow the user to exit that mode by pressing a single key as well.
For example, Opera [OPERA] includes a mode in which users can access
important user agent functionalities with single strokes from the numeric

change "numeric keypad" to "keyboard"

11.5 Default input configuration (P2)

11.6 User profiles (P2)

11.7 Tool bar configuration (P3)
