Re: the state of contenteditable

I did a bit of testing to see how it works in JAWS15 and the latest NVDA, and there still appears to be a few bugs in each.

Sample markup:

<div contenteditable tabindex="0" role="textbox" aria-multiline="true" aria-label="Message" ></div>

In JAWS and IE11, it works well.
However, using JAWS and FF and Chrome, pressing Enter to add a line break will automatically exit Forms Mode.

Using NVDA in FF and Chrome, it works well.
However, using NVDA in IE11, none of the typed content is readable using the arrow keys.

No, the best place to check for mapped roles is within the UAIG Role Mappings Table http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-implementation/#mapping_role_table

Oh, did this not make it into the final recommendation?
