Re: Regarding expected functionality for an ARIA editable data grid control

I would say that ctrl-end puts focus on the last row of the last page.
As long as ctrl-page up will move to the first row of that page.
This is more in line with the expected functionality of this key
combination in other situations, such as in a text editor.
Keep up the good work.
