> Hi, I have recently started working on rewrite of Select2 [1][2] which has been mentioned on this list a couple of times. I am trying to make it ADA compliant. I have a prototype of the multi-select mode of the widget and would like to gather some feedback from the community before I head too far down a wrong direction. You can see it in action here: [3].
