Grouping for radio form elements
Proposal owner: Florian Reuter (freuter at novell dot com), Jonathan Pryor (jpryor at novell dot com)
Proposal short name: Grouping for radio form elements.
Requested changes to the ODF Standard
Text changes/additions (please state section numbers): New optional attribute form:group-name for the <form:radio> element in section 11.3.14.
<define name="form-radio-attlist" combine="interleave"> <optional> <attribute name="form:group-name"> <ref name="string"/> </attribute> </optional> </define>
Currently ODF provides not way to group radio buttons. The new attribute will add grouping support.
New feature. Older ODF processors will ignore the element and thus treat is as one group only.
Grouping adds additional structure and helps accessibility.
