Q: Accessible implementation of ebay express pop-up?

Hi all,

I am wondering if there is an accessible way to implement the ebay
express interface--specifically, the DHTML window that pops up when
you click "More Choices" or "See All" from this page:
http://search.express.ebay.com/Computers-Networking_Computer-Components_Laptop-Accessories

Our developers looked at the code and it appears to be one long form
that has been formatted to look like a pop-up window with tags. I like
this approach because it compresses the display (at least visually).
Unfortunately JAWS cannot read the content in the pop-up interface.

Would changing the cursor focus solve the problem or does this
interface pose other accessibility issues as well? Whatever we design
must be both 508 compliant and user-friendly.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Sincerely,
Lisa Goldberg
