bjb> On Â§126.96.36.199 of JSF1.2 PFD describing the properties of SelectItem, it is
bjb> written :
bjb> Â« description / RW / String / A description of this selection item, for
bjb> use in development tools. Â»
This is a good idea but because it would have a big change on the
renderers I'm deferring it to the next release.
bjb> IMHO, a description for a specific item is important data that should be
bjb> represented to user screen in order to enhance the page accessibility.
bjb> As an example, (X)HTML got an attribute on most tags that is title, and
bjb> this description for HTML rendering should ge there if defined. This is
bjb> the same exact behaviour the disabled property is disabling the
bjb> selection in HTML using the disabled attribute.
bjb> So the sentence in the spec should be something like :
bjb> Â« A description of this selection item, that can be rendered to the user Â»
bjb> Such a description attribute should be IMHO present to most tag so that
bjb> the same accessibility level can be provided to the page using dynamic
bjb> See WAI for more elements on accessibility : http://www.w3.org/WAI/
