Accesskey should be ignored for elements with "pointer-events: none"


(Core :: DOM: UI Events & Focus Handling, defect)

Not set

Build ID: 20140917194002

Steps to reproduce:

Access keys exist as a substitute for using the mouse to select and click on things.

When a webpage author assigns the CSS property “pointer-events: none” to an element, they are signalling that the element cannot be selected or clicked on.

Therefore, the accesskey combination should not trigger the click event for such an element.

No longer blocks: pointerevent
Is there a spec which says accesskeys should be ignored for pointer-events: none; ?

What do other browsers do?
