The window splitter design pattern is at:

This pattern is largely complete. However, there are changes to the separator role for ARIA 1.1 that need to be addressed.

Changes that need to be made for the window splitter pattern:

  • More detailed description.
  • Describe how to label and set control values.
  • aria-expanded is no longer supported in aria 1.1.
  • aria-valuemin, max, and now are required by aria 1.1.

Nop ... we need to get #130 done, which is in current plan but standing still. The editorial work on the pattern itself is complete; we just need to make sure it holds up in practice.

@mcking65 for the F6 shortcut how does one cycle through windows? is each pane focusable? if so, how does the focus order work with the separator included?
