Re: Accordion question

Usually accordions have the hidden content immediately after the selector/tab and allow more than one piece of content to be exposed at a time.
I am not sure I was very clear, let me know if you have questions.

> In the accordion best practise 1.1. The document mentions in the keyboard section. Optionally the arrow keys can move between the accordion headings. In my mind this is similar to a tab list without the automatic update of the page. Other than providing better keyboard support. What is the difference between a tab list and a accordion? Both hide content until the user triggers the relevant value (tab or accordion button) to show the information. Tab list I assume can be vertically or horizontal layout. Can accordion be layout in the same fashion?
