Hi Angela,
I just tested in windows xp with keyboard access only (can't forget those
folks), no screenreader. Worked ok in IE 8 and FF 8. Keyboard access did
not work in Chrome 8.
I had an issue with knowing the current location of the keyboard focus. In
FF it was a 1 px dot to the upper right of the open/close icon, In IE it
was a thick 2-3 px thick vertical bar above and to the left of the icon.
