Re: Best practise for Application mode

There is very good guidance on this in the last section of chapter 2
of Using ARIA in html:
It should have its own entry in its table of contents, but it is in
section 2.10.
I could ellaborate, but I think this pretty much sums up all my
thoughts on the subject.
I have recommended this role only for a datepicker consisting of a
grid and a toolbar, where all keyboard interaction is controlled via
Javascript, and all content is tied to focusable controls.
Hope this hels, this page really is a must read for accessibility testers.
