Using HTML form controls and links (Success Criterion 4.1.2 (Name, Role, Value))

Hi Rich, Michael,




absolutely NORMATIVE regarding Success Criterion 4.1.2 (Name, Role,
<> ?


For instance, do I violate WCAG 2.0 when I decide NOT to use a <select>
statement for a combo in my application, 

and choose instead an input with an associated button and ARIA-Markup?



 With other words, is applied ARIA an 1:1 alternative to
<> ?



Anything else will lead to BIG discussions. This is a serious question. 

I think industry wants questions like these covered and clarified
because you can easily derive legal implications from this.


In case you are NOT the right persons to ask: Who will that be?


Also, it would help if in the ARIA spec a respective clarification could
be added.


Best Regards
