            Bug ID: 23877
           Summary: Checker fails use of ARIA role=alert on UL element
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: check
          Assignee: dave.null@w3.org
          Reporter: sailesh.panchang@deque.com
        QA Contact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

I used http://validator.w3.org/check
The validator fails use of role=alert on a UL tag
Row 53 Column 44: Bad value alert for attribute role on element ul.<ul
id="errlist" role="alert" tabindex="-1">
Test  the page at

I did not see this error a few months ago and am surprised why it is being
flagged as role=alert is a valid role as per ARIA specs.
